Novel amorphous nanowires from solution processed Ge25Se65Sb10 chalcogenide glass

Amorphous nanowires were synthesised from bulk GeSeSb Chalcogenide glass using ethylenediamine/ethanolamine solvent by means of a novel one step method. The synthesized nanowires were characterised by XRD, SEM, XPS, EDS and UV–VIS–NIR spectroscopy. Inspite of having same morphology, it was manifested that the nanowire dimension and bandgap Eg could be tuned with solute concentration which helps for synthesis of chalcogenide glass nanowires with controllable characteristics.
