Abstract

A feedback control mechanism based on infrared radiation monitoring coupled with reflectivity information was developed to control the temperature of a laser assisted chemical vapor deposition process for the growth of carbon nanotube forests. An infrared laser operating at 808 nm is focused on a silicon substrate containing a 20 nm-aluminum-oxide layer and a 1.5 nm-iron catalyst layer. The growth takes place in an argon/ hydrogen/ ethylene gaseous environment. SEM and Raman spectroscopy analysis show that good controllability and reproducibility is achieved over multiple experiments.
