Growth of monocrystalline In2O3 nanowires by a seed orientation dependent vapour–solid–solid mechanism

Author affiliations

Abstract

The metal particle supported formation of In2O3 nanowires via molecule-based chemical vapour deposition is demonstrated. Results of electron microscopy investigations of the wire and the metal seed lead to the conclusion that the growth mechanism should be assigned to the VSS mechanism, which is very rare for the formation of oxide nanowires. The growth could be assigned to a quasi-epitaxial guidance by the gold growth seed facilitating the formation of nanowires from a solid particle.
