Self-Organized Nanowire Formation of Si-Based Materials

  • Hideo Kohno
Part of the Lecture Notes in Nanoscale Science and Technology book series (LNNST, volume 3)


I summarize our results of the nanowire fabrication of various Si-based materials on substrate surfaces. By heating source materials in an evacuated silica tube, we have grown various types of wire-like one-dimensional structures such as Si nanochains, SiGe core/shell needles, and SiC fractal nanowires. Furthermore, Cu silicide nanochains and Fe silicide/Si heterostructured nanowires have also been fabricated using nanowire templates. We discuss their structure, formation mechanism, and properties based on transmission electron microscopy (TEM) observations and related analytical methods.
