Abstract: AbstractHighly purified single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) were investigated for use as an anode material for thin film lithium ion batteries. The high purity nanotubes were obtained through chemical refinement of soot generated by pulsed laser ablation. The purity of the nanotubes was determined via thermogravimetric analysis, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. The specific surface area and lithium capacity of the SWCNT's was compared to that of other conventional anode mate…
