Wide range stiffness tuning of carbon nanotube (CNT) forests over three orders of magnitude is presented by directly modifying the diameter and packing density of CNTs through the modulation of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) parameters. Fixed catalyst and floating catalyst CVD techniques exhibit significantly different deformation mechanisms and the open-cell foam model predicts the stiffness ratio within one type of CVD method very well.
