[Abstract]
The controllable synthesis of high quality low-dimensional materials, such as carbon nanotubes and graphene, is highly desired for both fundamental researches and their industrial applications. In the past, we have paid great effort to explore the mechanism of low-dimensional materials’ growth and the potential routes towards the controllable synthesis of the desired materials. In this talk, I will present our theoretical study on the growth mechanism of low dimensional nanomaterials, the understanding of various experimental puzzles results and the realization of their controllable synthesis experimentally. The contents will be covered in this talk include:
 
•The theory of nucleation and growth of carbon nanotubes [1] and the strategies towards the chirality control during growth [2];
 
•The theory on the mechanism of graphene CVD growth [3] and the strategies toward the quick synthesis of wafer sized graphene and its controllable growth [4];
 
•The kinetics of 2D materials growth and etching and the experimental control of their morphology.
