New Chemical Vapor Deposition Study Results from Y. Wang et al Described

May 16, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- New research on Chemical Vapor Deposition is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating from Chongqing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Carbon nanowalls (CNWs) were grown on different Si substrates by hot filament chemical vapor deposition, where CH4 was used as the reactive gas. The structure and composition of synthesized CNWs were studied using a field emission scanning electron microscope, a transmission electron microscope, a micro-Raman spectroscope, and an X-ray photoelectron spectroscope."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "The results indicate that the thick CNWs can be well grown on the Si substrate deposited with carbon nanodots while the thin CNWs are formed on the mirror-polished Si substrate. Beginning with the nucleation of carbon, the formation of CNWs with different structures was studied. The photoluminescence (PL) of CNWs on the two Si substrates was studied using a photoluminescence spectroscope, in which the 325 nm line of He-Cd laser was used as the irradiation source. The PL spectra show the two strong blue and green PL peaks centered at about 442 and 549 nm and a weak red PL peak centered at about 657 nm and the intensity of every PL peak of thin CNWs is stronger than that of thick CNWs. According to the interband transition mechanism of carbon materials, the PL properties of CNWs were analyzed."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The outcomes of this study are significant to control the structure of CNWs and contribute to the development of next optoelectronic devices."
