    The synthesis of superconducting niobium carbide (NbC) nanotubes was analyzed. It was found that carbon nanotubes were also used as templates to fabricate other one-dimensional nanomaterials. The length of NbC nanotubes was found to be ranges from hundreds of nanometers to several micrometers with diameters of 20-60 nm. The results show a strong photoluminescence peak at 346 nm and a superconducting transition temperature of 11.2 K for the NbC nanotubes.
