Branched carbon nanofiber network synthesis at room temperature using radio frequency supported microwave plasmas.

Boskovic, B. O. and Stolojan, V. and Zeze, D. A. and Forrest, R. D. and Silva, S. R. P. and Haq, S. (2004) 'Branched carbon nanofiber network synthesis at room temperature using radio frequency supported microwave plasmas.', Journal of applied physics., 96 (6). pp. 3443-3446.

Abstract

Carbon nanofibers have been grown at room temperature using a combination of radio frequency and microwave assisted plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The nanofibers were grown, using Ni powder catalyst, onto substrates kept at room temperature by using a purposely designed water-cooled sample holder. Branched carbon nanofiber growth was obtained without using a template resulting in interconnected carbon nanofiber network formation on substrates held at room temperature. This method would allow room-temperature direct synthesized nanofiber networks over relatively large areas, for a range of temperature sensitive substrates, such as organic materials, plastics, and other polymers of interest for nanoelectronic two-dimensional networks, nanoelectromechanical devices, nanoactuators, and composite materials.
