Paper Title:
A Comparative Study of the Synthesis of Carbon Nanotubes Using Ni and Fe as Catalyst
  Abstract

The effect of Fe and Ni catalysts on the synthesis of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) using atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition (APCVD) was investigated. Distribution of the catalyst particles over the Si substrate was analyzed by atomic force microscopy (AFM). Characterization by X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and Raman spectroscopic measurements over the grown species is reported. The study clearly shows that the catalyst strongly influences morphology and microstructure of the grown CNTs.
