Synthesis Of Carbon Nanowires By SHI Irradiation Of Fullerene C70 thin Film 

R. Singhal, A. Tripathi, D. K. Avasthi

Volume 4, Issue 6, Page 413-417 | DOI: 10.5185/amlett.2012.ib.105

Keywords: Nanowires; fullerene; irradiation.

Abstract: 

Electrically conducting carbon nanowires, all parallel to each other and embedded in fullerene C70 matrix are created by swift heavy ion irradiation of thin fullerene C70 film at low fluences (up to 1010 ions/cm2). The conductivity of the wires is several orders of magnitude higher than the surrounding material and it is due to the transformation of fullerene into amorphous carbon within each ion hit zone. These conducting nanowires are evidenced by conducting atomic force microscopy. The typical diameter of the conducting tracks is observed to be about 11-21 nm. Copyright © 2013 VBRI press.
