The characterization of plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) deposited nanotubes using Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) was presented. The grown nanotubes followed a tip-growth mechanism with a high degree of crystallinity detected in the bodies and same in the heads. By adjusting the deposition gas ratios, it was shown that it was possible to eliminate the unwanted amorphous carbon on the substrate surface.
