The physical state of the catalyst and its impact on the growth of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) is the subject of a long-standing debate. We addressed it here using in situ Raman spectroscopy to measure Fe and Ni catalyst lifetimes during the growth of individual SWNTs across a wide range of temperatures (500 - 1400 ºC). The temperature dependence of the Fe catalyst lifetimes underwent a sharp increase around 1100 ºC due to a solid to liquid phase transition. By comparing experimental results with the metal-carbon phase diagrams, we prove that SWNTs can grow from solid and liquid phase-catalysts, depending on the temperature.
