Nanowire Fabrication of Silicon-Based Materials
This paper describes our recent achievements in fabricating various kinds of nanowires of silicon-based materials including beta iron-silicide, silicon carbide, and silicon germanium. Some of them can be grown directly at one-step process, while the others can be fabricated using nanowire templates. We discuss their structures, growth mechanisms, and properties based on electron microscopy observations.
