  • Catalyst consumption during growth of carbon nanofilaments on Pd seeds. Breton, Yannick; Fleurier, Romain; Salvetat, Jean-Paul; Thomann, Anne-Lise; Verstraete, Matthieu; Charlier, Jean-Christophe // Applied Physics Letters;11/29/2004, Vol. 85 Issue 22, p5376 

    Carbon nanofilaments are produced at 600 °C by catalytic decomposition of acetylene on palladium nanoparticles. We observe that nanofilament length is limited to a few hundreds of nm when the size of Pd germs is less than 10 nm, possibly due to the incorporation of Pd atoms during growth. We...
