Nanotube composites: novel SiO2 coated carbon nanotubes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel route to nanocomposites consisting of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) embedded in amorphous SiOx is reported; the material has been characterised by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (HREELS); for the first time, and based on our observations, we propose theoretical models acounting for stable SiOx/tube interfaces using density functional based tight binding (DFTB).
