Effective control of dense, high-quality carbon nanotube arrays using hierarchical multilayer catalyst patterns is demonstrated. Scanning/transmission electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and numerical simulations show that by changing the secondary and tertiary layers one can control the properties of the nanotube arrays. The arrays with the highest surface density of vertically aligned nanotubes are produced using a hierarchical stack of iron nanoparticles and alumina and silica layers differing in thickness by one order of magnitude from one another. The results are explained in terms of the catalyst structure effect on carbon diffusivity.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
