Effect of γ-Radiation on the Structural and Conducting Properties of Copper Nanotubes
The influence of γ-radiation on the structural and conducting properties of copper nanotubes, obtained by electrochemical synthesis in pores of on polyethylene terephthalate-based template matrices, has been studied. With the use of scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction analysis, and electron diffraction analysis, it has been established that irradiation with γ-rays at doses of 50 and 100 kGy makes it possible to modify the crystal structure of the nanotubes, increasing their conductivity and decreasing the resistance of the nanosized entities without destroying their structure.
