Under controlled conditions, carbon nanotubes were formed at the location of the Ni-nanowire template. They inherited the shapes of the Ni nanowires, with their inner diameter being same as the outer diameter of the Ni nanowires. A novel growth mechanism which involves the diffusion of Ni atoms and the reshape of Ni nanowires is discussed. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.||Source Title:||Chemical Physics Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/98276||ISSN:||00092614||DOI:||10.1016/j.cplett.2004.06.075|
