## Abstract

Moderate-pressure microwave plasmas are used to prepare nitrogen-incorporated carbon nanowalls (CNWs) by chemical vapor deposition using acetylene and methane as precursor gases. The growth temperature range for acetylene is shown to be totally lower than that (<inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$>$</tex-math> </inline-formula>1000 <inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$^{\circ}$</tex-math> </inline-formula>C) for methane, which is attributed to the difference in degree of hydrogenation of radical species in the two plasmas. The structural order and cluster size of sp<inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$^{2}$</tex-math> </inline-formula> carbon phase in CNWs characterized by the Raman spectroscopy increase initially and, then, decrease with temperature in each temperature range, showing the same trend as the inverse of the sheet resistance of CNWs. The results indicate that the carrier transport in CNWs depends exclusively on the microstructure of sp<inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$^{2}$</tex-math> </inline-formula> carbon phase, despite a large difference in the growth temperature range depending on the precursor gas.
