In this work, we report the production of MoSe 2 (molybdenum diselenide) nanotubes formed by irradiating the samples with high doses of electron irradiation. The irradiation was performed on a 2 MeV Van de Graaff accelerator at the following conditions: voltage 1.3 MeV, current 5µA current, dose rate 25 kGy/min, and total dosage 1 MGy. We observed well-defined nanotubes of several nm long and few nm wide, which suppose to be hollow and capped at one end. As the level of irradiation was increased to 1 MGy, elo…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
