Atomic Force and Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Studies of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes
Karlstad University, Division for Engineering Sciences, Physics and Mathematics.
2006 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

In this diploma work I present the first experimental investigations

of carbon nanotubes at Karlstads University. Raw nanotube powder

of single walled carbon nanotubes have been dispersed primarily in

1,2-dichloroethane. The solutions have been spincoated on Au(111)

substrates. In order to determine the solubility of carbon nanotubes

in the solution the samples have been investigated in an atomic force

microscope.

Single walled carbon nanotubes deposited on a Au(111) substrate

have been investigated in a scanning tunneling microscope. Atomically

resolved STM images of single walled carbon nanotubes were obtained.

Scanning tunneling spectroscopy spectra was taken on a tube revealing

its chirality. The measured data from the nanotubes was compared to

calculations and confirmed their properties.

Dry direct contact transfers of individual single walled carbon nanotubes

have been done as a first step when trying to deposit carbon

nanotubes on reactive surfaces in ultra-high vacuum. Individual nanotubes

were found, confirming the success of dry direct contact transfer.
