Y-Shaped Carbon Nanowires Obtained from Ethanol Flames and their Growth Mechanism

Abstract:

Article Preview

Y-shaped carbon nanowires as a multi-branched carbon nanostructure have potential applications in electrical nano-devices. In this paper, we report the synthesis of Y-shaped carbon nanowires obtained from ethanol flames. These Y-shaped carbon nanowires have different morphologies from one to another. It is interesting that there are two Y-junctions on individual carbon nanowires. According to our experimental results, the growth mechanism of Y-shaped carbon nanowires has been discussed and a possible growth model of these Y-shaped carbon nanowires has been proposed.
