Paper Title:
Formation of Nanotubes of Carbon by Joule Heating of Carbon-Contaminated Si Nanochains
  Abstract

We report a new route to fabricating carbon nanotubes and nanotube interconnects. Insulating Si nanochains covered with hydrocarbon, which are a kind of Si nanowire, can be transformed into distorted nanotubes of carbon by Joule heating. Transmission electron microscopy observations of the transformation reveal that first a surface carbon shell is formed, and then oxide evaporates by Joule heating forming a nanotube.
