Poptube approach for ultrafast carbon nanotube growth

Author affiliations

Abstract

Microwave irradiation can be used to heat conductive materials and metallocene precursors to initiate ultrafast CNT growth. It takes only 15–30 seconds to grow CNTs at room temperature in air, without the need for any inert gas protection and additional feed stock gases.
