The morphology and chemical composition of carbon nanofibers in situ grown on a large carbon-fiber woven fabric are studied using SEM measurements, X-ray Diffraction, X-ray Flourescence, and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy. Results show that nanofibers can have a density and a morphology potentially advantageous for application in polymer-matrix composites. The fiber surface functional groups significantly change after the growth and this also potentially provides a better interfacial adhesion. These advantages can be controlled, e.g., by the catalyst loading and the type of solvent used for its deposition. View Full-Text
