Abstract

Five different forms of Si nanowires were produced by laser-ablation synthesis at 1200 °C. Besides the dominant normal form of Si nanowires, spring-shaped, fishbone-shaped, frog-egg-shaped and necklace-shaped nanowires were observed by transmission electron microscopy. The growth of these various Si nanowires can be explained by a two-step growth model based on the vapor-liquid-solid mechanism of whisker growth.
