Abstract
Coiled carbon nanotubes exhibit excellent mechanical and electrical properties because of the combination of coil morphology and properties of nanotubes. They could have potential novel applications in nano-composite, nano-electronic devices as well as nano-electromechanical system (NEMS). In this work, synthesis of regularly coiled carbon nanotubes is presented. It involves pyrolysis of hydrocarbon gas over metal/support catalyst by conventional thermal filament CCVD and microwave CCVD methods. The growth mechanism and structural and electrical properties of coiled carbon nanotubes are also discussed.
