The successful integration for carbon nanotubes in future electronic applications relies on advances in their synthesis. In this work optimization of growth parameters was conducted to obtain ultra long carbon nanotubes. Their morphology was analyzed by means of different techniques and evidence of the occurrence of nanotube bundles was found. The effect of varying several parameters on the morphology of the obtained nanotubes was investigated and successful growth of ultra long nanotubes was achieved. The settling process, i.e. the sinking of the nanotubes to the substrate, of those nanotubes was investigated by a newly developed in-situ rotation tool and statistical data for their behavior during growth was obtained.
