Plasma–surface interactions at nanoscales : a combinatorial theoretical, process diagnostics and surface microanalysis approach
Ostrikov, Kostya (2014) Plasma–surface interactions at nanoscales : a combinatorial theoretical, process diagnostics and surface microanalysis approach. Journal of Physics D : Applied Physics, 47(22).
This paper introduces an integral approach to the study of plasma-surface interactions during the catalytic growth of selected nanostructures (NSs). This approach involves basic understanding of the plasma-specific effects in NS nucleation and growth, theoretical modelling, numerical simulations, plasma diagnostics, and surface microanalysis. Using an example of plasma-assisted growth of surface-supported single-walled carbon nanotubes, we discuss how the combination of these techniques may help improve the outcomes of the growth process. A specific focus here is on the effects of nanoscale plasma-surface interactions on the NS growth and how the available techniques may be used, both in situ and ex situ to optimize the growth process and structural parameters of NSs.
