Abstract

Boron nitride (BN) nanohorns were fabricated, and their structures were investigated by transmission electron microscopy and molecular mechanics calculation. The multi-walled BN nanohorns would be stabilized by stacking of nanohorn structures. Growth of the BN nanohorn was observed at elevated temperatures, and the activation energy for the nanohorn growth was estimated to be 2.3 eV.
