New Carbon Nanotube Composite Developed by Fujitsu Laboratories
Fujitsu Laboratories has made a breakthrough in carbon nanotube research.
The company has combined carbon nanotubes and graphene, both of which are nano-scale
carbon structures, to self-form a new nano-scale carbon composite, at the relatively
low temperature of 510 degrees Celsius.
In experiments using chemical vapor deposition, a technique to synthesize thin
films and structures on a substrate by thermally decomposing a feedstock gas
in a vacuum chamber, Fujitsu Labs discovered that several to dozens of layers
of graphene were formed self-organizingly on the vertically aligned multi-walled
carbon nanotubes in such a way that they are connected perpendicularly.
