Low-temperature Synthesis of Carbon Nanotubes by Selectively Heating Catalyst

Organization:CFD Research Corporation, Alabama, US
I.P. Brief:The present IP is a method for synthesizing CNTs on a substrate by selectively heating a catalyst for CNT synthesis on or near the surface of the substrate using: exothermic reactions of catalytic oxidation on the surface of the catalyst, a radio frequency (RF) source, or both.
Keywords:Carbon Nanotube Deposition, Flat Panel Displays, Sensors, Computer Chips
Primary Industry:Electronics
Specific Market:VACNTs manufacturing whose short-term perspectives depend on FPDs
