Abstract

We have demonstrated the ability to control the interlayer spacing of scrolled reduced graphene nanotubes through a high-temperature thermal treatment. The thermal annealing-induced variation of the interlayer spacing from 0.385 to 0.339 nm allowed us to study the change in the electronic and transport properties of the scrolled tubes.
