Abstract

Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) are grown vertically on Si(100) substrates by RF-plasma-assisted pulsed-laser deposition. High-positive ion flux is required to transform the growth of coral-like nanostructures to MWNTs. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy indicates that these MWNTs are having higher structural order than MWNTs grown by chemical vapor deposition. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
