|Abstract: ||It has been demonstrated that nanotechnology and nanomaterials could offer valid solutions to improve the conversion efficiency by exploiting effects induced at mesoscopic scales. In this research field, the activity on carbon nanotubes CNTs as building blocks for solar energy conversion devices is developing. The work presented in this thesis has been devoted to investigate the physical mechanisms underlying the photoresponse generation of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) when exploited in electrochemical cells and solid-state devices. A large part of the activity has consisted of the development of suitable strategies for the controlled growth of MWCNTs.
MWCNTs have been synthesised by thermal CVD varying the experimental growth parameters. By using morphological and structural characterization techniques, it has been possible to fix the proper synthesis parameters to obtain controlled MWCNTs structures on specific substrates.
