- ... We demonstrate that a single zone furnace with a modified synthesis chamber design is sufficient to obtain metal (Fe, Co or Ni) filled carbon nanotubes (CNT) with high filling efficiency and controlled morphology. The samples are synthesized by pyrolysis of metallocenes, a technique that otherwise requires a dual zone furnace. The respective metallocenes in all three cases are sublimed in powder f ...
