Carbon nanotubes present enormous potential for future nanoelectronic applications. This study details one method for producing such nanotubes via chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of methane gas at high temperatures. This method represents the best known way to selectively place nanotubes, as will be needed for complex electronic structures. Various growth conditions are manipulated and the effects on the resulting nanotubes are recorded.
