Abstract

The multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNT) were grown on thick iron dots using hot-filament chemical vapor deposition with a mixture of methane and hydrogen. The nanosized thin-film iron dot size effect was presented on the MWNT growth. It was found that on larger dots, more MWNT grows. It was also found that the diameters of the MWNTs that grow on the dots were independent of the sizes of the iron dots.
