|Abstract:||We present experimental evidence of nanojunction structures explicitly observed after application of high electric fields on multiwall carbon nanotube arrays. The electric field as well as thermal effects result in carbon-carbon bond breaking and redeposition leading to nanojunction formation. The growth mechanism of the nanojunction is believed to be open-ended topological defect growth in which carbon atoms at two adjacent nanotube tips chemically react and fuse forming an array of nanojunctions. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.|
