Oxide nanowire

Growth mechanism and physical properties of oxide nanowire


  • Growth of 3D branched ITO nanotrees and emergence of a new In-Sn-O phase: 
  • Silicide nanoweb formed as a result of inter-wire electrostatic interaction between polar surfaces:
  • Recovery of band-edge UV emission in SnO2 by breaking the dipole-forbidden rule:
