CNWs grown on a Cu plate and stainless steel plates; emission spectrum of dc glow discharge. Figure S-1 SEM images of CNWs grown on a Cu plate with different surface density. Figure S-2 (a) SEM image showing no presence of CNWs on a stainless steel plate when CH4 alone is used as the precursor gas. (b) CNWs grown using CH4 and H2O. The growth time for both cases is 5 min. Figure S-3 Emission spectrum of glow discharge obtained by subtracting the background signal (without discharge) from the total spectrum (with discharge). Emission lines of OH are remarkable in the spectrum of a CNW sample.
