Paired twins and [112] morphology in GaP nanowires.


Formation of random as well as periodic planar defects can occur during vapor-liquid-solid growth of nanowires with the zinc-blende crystal structure. Here we investigate the formation of pairs of twin planes in GaP nanowires. In such pairs, the first twin plane is formed at a random position, rapidly followed by the formation of a second twin plane of… (More)
