This article reviews recent results in the field of nanotube research obtained at EPFL. We show in particular that with catalytic deposition techniques such as chemical vapor deposition carbon nanotubes with controlled properties can be obtained. We then discuss the functionalization of these CVD-grown nanotubes for the realization of fibers and composites, as well as their use in field emission devices.
