Plasma-controlled adatom delivery and (re)distribution: Enabling uninterrupted, low-temperature growth of ultralong vertically aligned single walled carbon nanotubes
Tam, E. & Ostrikov, K. (2008) Plasma-controlled adatom delivery and (re)distribution: Enabling uninterrupted, low-temperature growth of ultralong vertically aligned single walled carbon nanotubes. Applied Physics Letters, 93(26), pp. 261504-1.
Large-scale (∼109 atoms) numerical simulations reveal that plasma-controlled dynamic delivery and redistribution of carbon atoms between the substrate and nanotube surfaces enable the growth of ultralong single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and explain the common experimental observation of slower growth at advanced stages. It is shown that the plasma-based processes feature up to two orders of magnitude higher growth rates than equivalent neutral-gas systems and are better suited for the SWCNT synthesis at low nanodevice friendly temperatures. © 2008 American Institute of Physics.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
