Article Preview

We have demonstrated the growth of SiOx nanowires by the simple heating of the Au-coated Si substrates. We used X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy to characterize the samples. The as-synthesized SiOx nanowires had amorphous structures with diameters in the range of 10-70 nm. We have discussed the possible growth mechanism.
