      Low temperature and cost-effective growth of vertically aligned carbon nanofibers using spin-coated polymer-stabilized palladium nanocatalysts 

      Saleem, A. M.; Shafiee, S.; Krasia-Christoforou, T.; Savva, I.; Göransson, G.; Desmaris, V.; Enoksson, P. (2015)
      We describe a fast and cost-effective process for the growth of carbon nanofibers (CNFs) at a temperature compatible with complementary metal oxide semiconductor technology, using highly stable polymer-Pd nanohybrid colloidal ...
