The structure of the carbon nanotube and its surface topography probed by transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy

Abstract:

The structure, morphology and surface topography of multilayer carbon nanotubes have been studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The carbon nanotube three-dimensional structure, and especially that near the cap regions, is resolved by use of these two complementary techniques. We have found that a large proportion of nanotubes have a cylindrical shaped body, with a significant number being polygonal in appearance. Polygonal caps with extended flat...
