Carbon nanomaterial studied by atomic-force and electron microscopies
It is suggested to use the atomic-force microscopy (AFM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to study carbon material synthesized by catalytic pyrolysis of ethanol. It is shown how AFM and TEM can be employed to determine the geometric parameters of carbon nanofibers and nanotubes, examine their mechanical and adhesion characteristics, and analyze their structure.
