Abstract

We clarified the relationship between the lattice-oriented AAP growth and step-templated growth modes on A-face sapphire. The atomic arrangement was found to be dominant for the single-atomic steps, while the SWNTs align along the steps edges when the step becomes higher than double-atomic steps. Our finding opens up a possibility of creating hierarchical network of SWNTs on surface-engineered sapphire substrates by combining these two growth modes.
