Scientists grow carbon nanofibres straight onto plastic

Abstract:
Researchers from the University of Cambridge, UK, have deposited carbon nanofibres directly onto plastic substrates using plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition. The arrays of fibres could have applications as field emitters in displays. “We were able to grow carbon nanofibres directly onto low-temperature plastic substrates for the first time,” Stephan Hofmann told nanotechweb.org. “Using well-established lithography techniques, we readily demonstrated a nanoscale definition on the new, flexible platform.”
