Abstract
A new CVD method for growing carbon nanotubes while consuming little energy is presented. In this method, the metal catalyst dispersed on the fibers of a carbon paper is Ohmically heated up to 600-700C to decompose gases like acetylene, ethylene or carbon monoxide in order to grow carbon nanotubes and/or nanofibers on their carbon fiber support. These nanostructures are from 5 to 25 nm in diameter. The hairy carbon paper thus obtained may find use as high specific area electrode.
