Patra, SK and Rao, Mohan G (2005) Synthesis of carbon nanotubes by ECR plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition. In: Applied Physics A: Materials Science & Processing, 80 (5). pp. 1113-1115.
Carbon nanotubes have been grown using an electron cyclotron resonance(ECR) plasma source at a substrate temperature of 500 degrees C.Methane has been used as the source gas. A network of carbon nanotubes has been observed in scanning electron microscopy. Transmission electron microscopy revealed that the structure consists of straight,Y-junction and ring-like nanotubes. Further, electron diffraction of the nanotubes confirms a graphite crystal structure.
