Distribution of ion-current density on substrate between carbon nanotubes grown from low-temperature plasma
Levchenko, I., Ostrikov, K., & Xu, S. (2008) Distribution of ion-current density on substrate between carbon nanotubes grown from low-temperature plasma. IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 36(4), pp. 864-865.
Using Monte Carlo simulation technique, we have calculated the distribution of ion current extracted from low-temperature plasmas and deposited onto the substrate covered with a nanotube array. We have shown that a free-standing carbon nanotube is enclosed in a circular bead of the ion current, whereas in square and hexagonal nanotube patterns, the ion current is mainly concentrated along the lines connecting the nearest nanotubes. In a very dense array (with the distance between nanotubes/nanotube-height ratio less than 0.05), the ions do not penetrate to the substrate surface and deposit on side surfaces of the nanotubes.
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.
