A novel fast-heating chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method to grow ultralong, well-aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) is developed. The control of lengths and growth directions provided by this CVD technique is used to fabricate ordered, large-scale nanotube structures. The Figure shows an ultralong SWNT.
