MM4.03 - Fabrication and Characterization of New Hybrid C60/CNT Structures, A Peapod Analogue 
December 2, 2014   9:30am - 9:45am

Fullerenes and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have different electronic structures; C60 is known to be a semiconductor and a good electron acceptor while SWCNTs can be either metallic or semiconducting. C60/CNT hybrid nano structures such as peapods constitute a system with different physical properties, accounting from a different band structure. This opens up for engineering materials for a variety of applications in electronics. We will present preliminary results on a novel variant of Peapods. The structures are characterized by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) to track the filling of C60. We also present transport measurements of the hybrid structures. The electrical properties of the structures observed by HRTEM are tested at low temperatures.
