GaN nanowire arrays for high-output nanogenerators.
Three-fold symmetrically distributed GaN nanowire (NW) arrays have been epitaxially grown on GaN/sapphire substrates. The GaN NW possesses a triangular cross section enclosed by (0001), (2112), andExpand

Free-Standing Single-Crystal NiSi2 Nanowires with Excellent Electrical Transport and Field Emission Properties
Free-standing single-crystal NiSi2 nanowires (NWs) were synthesized on Ni foil with a simple vapor transport method. The growth of previously elusive Si-rich silicide NWs was achieved with theExpand

Growth of CuInSe2 and In2Se3/CuInSe2 nano-heterostructures through solid state reactions.
In(2)Se(3) is an essential phase change material and CuInSe(2) is the fundamental basis of the copper-indium-gallium-diselenide (CIGS) solar energy material. In this paper, we demonstrate theExpand

Oriented growth of large-scale nickel sulfide nanowire arrays via a general solution route for lithium-ion battery cathode applications
A general solution method for the oriented growth of large-scale Ni3S2nanowire arrays has been developed. The controlled oxidation scheme by combining ethylenediamine-chalcogens and hydrazine inExpand

Highly luminescent, homogeneous ZnO nanoparticles synthesized via semiconductive polyalkyloxylthiophene template
We report here the preparation of ZnO/polythiophene-based conjugated polymer nanocomposites that retain especially highly luminescent (Φf > 0.5) and semiconductive properties without the addition ofExpand

Low temperature synthesis of copper telluride nanostructures: phase formation, growth, and electrical transport properties
We propose a low cost solution-based approach to synthesize various low dimensional copper telluride (Cu-Te) nanostructures. By precisely controlling different ethylenediamine (EDA) ratios in aExpand

Room-temperature ferromagnetism in self-assembled (In, Mn)As quantum dots
Self-assembled In1−xMnxAs quantum dots (0.19⩽x⩽0.45) have been grown on GaAs (100) substrates by low-temperature molecular beam epitaxy. The microstructure analysis revealed that the uniformlyExpand

Enhancement of exchange coupling between GaMnAs and IrMn with self-organized Mn(Ga)As at the interface
An atomically flat and uniform reaction layer of Mn(Ga)As was found to self-organize at the (Ga,Mn)As∕IrMn interface by postannealing. The Mn(Ga)As layer exhibits strong ferromagnetic characteristicsExpand

Vertical nanopatterning of 6H-SiC(0001) surfaces using gold-metal nanotube membrane lithography
Large-area membranes consisting of arrays of gold metal nanotubes were used as shadow masks to generate vertical nanopatterned 6H-SiC(0001) substrates. The gold membranes are formed by a replicationExpand
