A systematic Raman study of boron carbonitride (BCN) nanotubes, synthesized by bias-assisted hot filament chemical vapor deposition, is reported. Raman spectra up to the fourth order are observed from the BCN nanotubes. Comparing with pure carbon nanotubes, the Raman bands in BCN nanotubes are broadened and the relative intensity of the D mode with respect to the G mode varies with increasing B and N atomic concentrations. The underlying mechanism has been studied on the basis of the microstructures obtained by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.

    We report the effects of microwave irradiation on both unpurified and purified iron-catalyzed high-pressure disproportionation (HiPco)-grown single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in ultrahigh vacuum. Under microwave irradiation, we observe that unpurified HiPco SWNTs quickly reach temperatures...

    Findings are given from the experimental observation of the vacuum breakdown of carbon-nanotube (CNT) field emitters on a Si tip. The CNTs were grown on the apex of a Si microtip by microwave plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The electrical contact of the CNT-Si junction was shown to be...
