Study of the growth and adsorption mechanisms of globular and tubular fullerenes

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Ultra high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy is used for characterizing the adsorption of Carbon 60 on various metallic, semiconducting and insulating surfaces, from their vibrational fingerprints. The same technique is applied to the study of acetylene on catalytic metals, first step before the nanotubes growth.
