Abstract: Nanocrystals of hexagonal nickel carbide have been synthesized via physical vapor deposition of elemental nickel onto the surface of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes. Combining high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) with three-dimensional atom probe tomography (3DAP) confirmed that these nanocrystals have a hexagonal structure, are enriched in carbon, and have a composition of ~Ni-25 at. % C (Ni3C). This metastable hexagonal nickel carbide phase appears to be stabilized due to the growth of the nanocrystals on the surface of the nanotubes that act as a template and also as a source of carbon. The stability of this nickel carbide phase has also been investigated by density functional theory (DFT) calculations and compared to the experimental results.
