Three types of composite nanotube heterostructures (two double-layered and one triple-layered structure) are synthesized by simple heat treatment, forming SiC-SiO 2, C-SiO 2, and C-SiC-SiO 2 composite coaxial nanotubes. These multilayered composite nanotubes consist of several components with different electrical properties, for example, metal, semiconductor, and insulator components. In particular, C-SiC-SiO 2 triple-layered nanotubes with metallic, semiconducting, and insulating layers are synthesized for the first time. These multilayered nanotubes can be expected to find applications in nanoscale heterostructure electronic and optical devices.
