First-principles density-functional theory has been used to investigate the interaction of (metallic) (7,7) carbon nanotubes with the hydrogenated (001) surface of diamond. There is no evidence for a significant chemical interaction between the nanotubes and the diamond surface, although an appreciable binding energy is obtained. The corresponding electronic band structures are indicative of moderate electron transfer from the diamond substrate to the nanotube, which would in practice leave behind a mobile layer of holes. These results suggest that carbon nanotubes may, like buckminsterfullerene, act as suitable p-type transfer dopants for diamond. © 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
