There are several advantages of growing carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
directly on bulk metals, for example in the formation of robust
CNT­metal contacts during growth. Usually, aligned CNTs1­9
are
grown either by using thin catalyst layers predeposited on
substrates1­7
or through vapour-phase catalyst delivery7­9
