The article presents the plasma synthesis method of carbon nanotubes using an electric arc discharge. In this method different carbon nanotubes are produced as a cathode deposit growth or are deposed on various substrates such as silicon, metals and other materials. The examples of applications of carbon nanotubes in medical applications were presented. Conditions required for the synthesis of carbon nanotubes and process parameters were mentioned. Applications of carbon nanotubes for cancer treatment were discussed. The method of temperature measurement of the arc was described.
