Abstract: In many applications like photovoltaics, fuel cells, batteries, or interconnects in integrated circuits carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have the role of charge transport electrodes. The building of such devices requires an in situ growth of CNTs at temperatures where the structure or chemical composition of the functional materials is unaltered. We report that in a chemical vapor deposition process involving an oxidative dehydrogenation reaction of C2H2 with CO2 growth temperatures below 400 degrees C are achieved. Furthermore, the growth can be performed on versatile materials ranging from metals through oxides to organic materials.
