Figure 5.

a AFM phase image showing the decomposed GaAs substrate by a colloidal solution which consists of MWCNTs and Ag nanoparticles after annealing at 300°C for 30 min. Compact 2D island self-assembly of Ag and possible GaAs are seen in the image, b experimental PSD profiles of the decomposed GaAs, decomposed GaAs/Toluene and decomposed GaAs/MWCNTs annealed at 300°C. The inset is the PSD of the GaAs/Toluene system fitted by the fractal and ABC models
