Abstract

Straight carbon nanotubes, carbon nanotube 'knees', Y-branches of carbon nanotubes, and coiled carbon nanotubes were grown on a graphite substrate by the decomposition of fullerene under moderate heating (450 °C) in the presence of transition metal particles. The grown structures were investigated without any further manipulation by STM. The observed coiled carbon nanotubes are tentatively identified with the theoretically predicted hacckelite.
