Well-aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been synthesized by thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of acetylene on cobalt nanoparticles. The synthesized CNTs have a very uniform diameter and high purity. Our results demonstrate that the alignment, density, and diameter of CNTs can be easily controlled by adjusting cobalt nanoparticles on substrates.
