Aligned multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were successfully grown on a Si substrate based on a thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method. We employed Co metal nanoparticles as the catalyst for nanotube growth, which were prepared by a reverse micelle method. The reverse micelle method provides nanoparticles covered with surfactants so that they are dispersed in organic solvent and, thus highly processible. The present MWNT arrays are promising for application in field emission displays, because of much lower nanotube density compared with the previously reported arrays.
