The effect of growth parameters on the height and density of carbon nanotube forests
by Call, Robert W., M.S., Utah State University, 2012, 44; 1516419
Abstract (Summary)

Carbon nanotube forests (CNTFs) are grown using an injection chemical vapor deposition method. Images of CNTFs are taken using a scanning electron microscope and are used to measure their height and density. Growth parameters are systematically varied to determine their effect on the height and density of CNTFs. Investigations of CNTF density as a function of distance from the growth substrate reveal that diffusion can be a limiting factor on CNTF growth. Our findings indicate that height and density are related and that each growth parameter has multi-dimensional effects.
