Y-Junction Multibranched Carbon Nanofibers
Abstract:Multibranched carbon nanofiber (CNF) is produced by a thermal chemical vapor deposition method using camphor as precursor. Nickel and cobalt catalyst was deposited on silicon substrate by e-beam evaporation and used as substrate for the growth of carbon nanomaterials. Branched carbon nanofibers were grown on the nickel thin film at 900 °C, whereas spherical carbon beads formed on the cobalt thin film. These fibers followed base growth mechanism devoid of any catalyst particle at the tip of fibers.
