Easily integrate carbon nanotube synthesizer (CNT) nanotechnology into your research or curricula. Our CNT synthesizer quickly provides a reliable source of carbon nanotubes for research projects and product development, while serving as a robust educational tool for academic labs.

An inexpensive, benchtop system for producing high quality multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNT), this CNT furnace:

  • Uses a single source precursor
  • Does not require pre‐patterning of a substrate with catalyst
  • Produces MWNTs with less than 4% iron catalyst impurity
  • Is easy to use
  • Has low consumable costs

The versatile Nanotech Innovations SSP-354 has a footprint of less than 4 sq. ft. and can be located virtually anywhere in your lab, even within standard fume hoods. The novel translucent gold shielding dramatically reduces radiative heating outside the furnace, while allowing visual inspection of the deposition process in motion.

CNT furnace to grow multi-walled carbon nanotubes

A single-step process eliminates much of the complexity of growing CNTs and allows students to make their own nanomaterials! Batches of CNTs are synthesized at once and can then be characterized in the SEM and AFM systems.
