(Invited) “Development of Carbon Nanotubes for Optical Applications”, H. Furuta, ICCE-nano2015, (Chengdu, China, 15 Jul. 2015).
In the presentation, I reviewed physical, electrical and optical properties of carbon nanotubes and their applications. I also showed recent works in my laboratory including “Anisotropic Optical Properties of Carbon Nanotube Forests.”

We showed a poster presentation in NT15, entitled “Optical and THz properties of carbon nanotube forests”. Anisotropic optical index of vertically aligned CNT forests are interpreted by the anisotropic electorical conductance of nano-rods of CNTs.

In this article, in-situ electrical conductance measurement of Ni catalysts on insulating substrates during magnetron sputtering deposition were developed for the density and size control of the Ni catalyst for CNT growth. Increase of electrical conductance of thin film in the initial stage of magnetron sputtering deposition of Ni on insulating SiO2 substrates was investigated for preparation of carbon nanotube (CNT) catalyst.
It was demonstrated that the electrical conductance measurement during sputtering deposition was a convenient tool to examine the structures in the deposited film.
I am pleased to have an invited talk in ICRP-8/SPP-31.
Presentation Title was “Magnetron sputtering deposition of catalysts for the growth control of carbon nanotubes”, ICRP-8/SPP-31, Fukuoka, Japan (2014.02.06).
In this presentation, I reviewed magnetron sputtering deposition of catalysts for the growth control of carbon nanotubes. I also showed recent works of my laboratory.
