Title (EN) METHOD FOR GROWING CARBON NANOTUBES HAVING A PREDETERMINED CHIRALITY
(FR) PROCEDE DE CROISSANCE DE NANOTUBES DE CARBONE POSSEDANT UNE CHIRALITE PREDETERMINEE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Method for growing carbon nanotubes having a determined chirality, comprising the steps of fragmentation of at least one initial carbon nanotube (30) having a determined chirality with obtainment of at least two portions, or seeds, of carbon nanotube, each one having one free growth end (32); supply of atoms of carbon (33) with autocatalyst addition of the atoms of carbon (33) at the free end (32) of each portion of nanotube (30) to determine an elongation, or growth, of the nanotube (30).
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de croissance de nanotubes de carbone possédant une chiralité déterminée. Ce procédé consiste à fragmenter au moins un nanotube de carbone initial (30) présentant une chiralité déterminée pour obtenir au moins deux parties ou germes du nanotube de carbone qui présentent respectivement une extrémité de croissance libre (32), à fournir des atomes de carbone (33) avec l'addition autocatalytique des atomes de carbone (33) au niveau de l'extrémité libre (32) de chaque partie du nanotube (30) afin de déterminer un allongement ou une croissance dudit nanotube (30).
