Growth of polygonal rings and wires of CuS on structured surfaces

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polygonal rings and microwires of covellite-type CuS were grown on micropillar arrays using chemical bath deposition and characterized by SEM, TEM, and XRD. A growth mechanism involving heterogeneous nucleation of CuS spheres at the micropillar tips, followed by their self-assembly into wires, is proposed.
