Efficient and continuous production of fullerenes, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), and carbon nano-particles has been developed by the JxB arc jet method, where the Lorentz force of magnetic field jets out gaseous carbon particles to the JxB direction. In order to realize continuous mass production of these carbon clusters, the revolverinjection- type arc jet producer (RIT-AJP) has been developed. Production of fullerenes, endohedral metallo-fullerenes, SWNTs, metal-encapsulated carbon nano particles has been examined.

Bahasa Abstract

Produksi Tabung Nano dan Gugus Karbon secara Terus-Menerus dengan Menggunakan Penghasil Arc Jet Tipe-Injeksi-Revolver. Produksi fulerena, tabung nano karbon berdinding tunggal (SWNT), dan partikel nano karbon secara efisien dan terus-menerus telah dikembangkan dengan metode arc jet JxB. Di dalam metode ini, daya Lorentz pada medan magnet menyemburkan partikel-partikel karbon gas ke arah JxB. Agar dapat memproduksi gugus-gugus karbon ini secara massal dan terus-menerus, penghasil arc jet tipe-injeksi-revolver (RIT-AJP) telah dikembangkan. Produksi fulerena, metalo-fulerena endohedral, SWNT, dan partikel-partikel nano karbon yang terenkapsulasi metal telah diamati.
