Abstract

Effective growth of multiwalled boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) has been obtained by thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD). This is achieved by a growth vapor trapping approach as guided by the theory of nucleation. Our results enable the growth of BNNTs in a conventional horizontal tube furnace within an hour at 1200 °C. We found that these BNNTs have an absorption band edge of 5.9 eV, approaching that of single h-BN crystals, which are promising for future nanoscale deep-UV light emitting devices.
