This paper reports our scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM/STS) study of double-walled and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) of different diameter deposited on Bi2Te3 (narrow gap semiconductor). The approximate diameter of the studied double-walled and multi-walled CNTs was 2 nm and 8 nm, respectively. Crystalline Bi2Te3 was used as a substrate to enhance the contrast between the CNTs and the substrate in the STS measurements performed to examine peculiarities of CNT morphology, such as junctions, ends or structural defects, in terms of their electronic structure.
