Tailoring the morphology of AlN: from 6-fold patterned crystals to multilayer hierarchical structures

Author affiliations

Abstract

Combustion of inorganic powder mixtures is not only one of the chemical routes of fabrication of advanced inorganic materials but is also drawing attention as a high-temperature process to grow inorganic nanocrystals of various shapes and morphologies. Here, we demonstrate the formation of AlN 3-D structures with diverse morphologies: from 6-fold patterned crystals to multilayer hierarchical structures. We examined the possible chemical mechanisms governing the formation of AlN crystals and the growth behaviour based on FESEM and TEM observations.
