Abstract:The deficiency of carbon nanotube (CNT) growth on temperature-sensitive substrates such as plastic tapes impedes the further progress in CNT electronics. We report a novel method that is able to offer the solution by selectively delivering energy via high radio frequency heating to carbon atoms for their catalytic assembly into individual CNTs. Direct growth of CNTs on a flexible Kapton substrate was demonstrated. A mechanism of selective heating was discussed.
