Synthesis of AlN Nanowires and Characterization with Properties of Composite Materials
The experiments were carried out in a horizontal tube furnace using Al and NH3 as the source materials. The structure and morphology of the as-synthesized AlN nanowires are characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopies and Raman spectrum. The results indicated that the structure of synthesized AlN nanowire is hexagonal wurtzite structure, the length of the AlN nanowire is between several micrometers and the the average diameter is about 100 nm.The growth of the AlN nanowires can be expelained by vapor–liquid-solid mechanism.
