Synthesis of single crystalline tellurium nanotubes with triangular and hexagonal cross sections.

Single crystalline tellurium (Te) nanotubes with triangular cross sections were successfully synthesized for the first time by a simple approach of vaporizing tellurium metal and condensing the vapor in an inert atmosphere onto a suitable substrate. Tellurium gas was evaporated by heating at 350 degrees C and was condensed on the Si (100) substrate at 150… CONTINUE READING
