Carbon is one of the most versatile materials of the periodic table and exists in various allotropic forms and shapes including fullerene, carbon nanotube, graphene. Coiled carbon filaments exhibit very attractive morphology and properties such as absorption of electromagnetic waves and high conductivity because of their shape and carbon structure. Bidirectionally grown double helical carbon microcoils (CMCs) are one type of coiled carbon filaments with unique catalytic activity. In this study, CMCs were synthesized using a chemical vapor deposition method. Growth mechanism of CMCs was explained by a simple exponential catalyst decay model.
