We have developed a continuous synthesis technique to produce carbon nanostructures using a well-controlled plasma jet. In this method, numerous fiber-like structures can be produced readily using CH_4 gas and H_2 gas without a catalyst. Without a catalyst, carbon nanostructures that have small diameters in the range of about 10-100 nm are mostly produced. The effect of metal catalysts on carbon nanostructure synthesis is also studied. The yields of carbon nanostructures are dramatically increased using Ni substrate and/or Ni powders in the gas-phase synthesis of CH_4 and H_2.
