Molten Gallium as a Catalyst for the Large

While attempting to grow Si nanowires by using molten Ga as a catalyst and silicon wafer as a Si source, we unintentionally obtained SiO2 nanowires in a high yield.17 Surprisingly, these nanowires demonstrate many amazing growth phenomena unlike process.

Vapor‐solid mechanism was proposed for the growth mode of the as‐grown ultra‐long 6H–SiC nanowires. This study not only provided new insight into the growth mode for in situ synthesizing 6H–SiC nanowires on silicon‐based ceramics, but also suggested a new design methodology for synthesizing ultra‐long nanowires.

Quasi-one-dimensional nanostructures of silicon, oxides, and other materials show great promise for a variety of applications. These nanostructures are commonly grown using metal catalyst nanoparticles. This paper investigates the growth mechanism of Au-catalyzed Si nanowires through in situ x-ray diffraction, and the results are compared to previously studied Au-catalyzed ZnO nanorods. The Si

Processing and Characterization of Silicon Nitride

Crystalline silicon nitride nanofiber papers were formed in situ on the surface of graphite plates by the carbothermal reduction method using silica nanopowder and silica gel precursor pellets. The carbothermal reduction process was performed at a temperature of 1450C in a flowing nitrogen atmosphere inside a horizontal alumina tube furnace.

In Situ TEM Observation of a Microcrucible Mechanism

In the hypothetical microcrucible growth mechanism for nanowires, a molten catalytic particle located in a pore on a substrate continually feeds the outward growth of the wire. To observe such a mechanism requires the ability to examine nanowire growth in situ. Boston et al. (p. [623][1]) studied various stages of Y2BaCuO5 nanowire growth using transmission electron microscopy and were able to

Synthesis of silicon/germanium nanowires and field

We find the high growth rate is responsible for the silicon nanowires with less growth defects when they are grown by use of silicon tetrachloride as a precursor and hydrogen as a carrier gas. Based on this funding, large area, high aspect ratio, h111i oriented silicon nanowires are successfully grown on Si (111) and Si (100).

Electrodeposited Silicon Nanowires from Silica

Rational manipulation of size, surface chemistry, and electrode configuration is of prime importance to enhance lithium storage capability of silicon-based anode for Li-ion batteries. Herein, Si nanowires with small sizes (20–30 nm in diameter) and ultrathin surface oxide layer (∼1 nm in thickness) are directly electrodeposited on carbon cloth from soluble SiO2 in molten chloride salts

Template‐Free Electrochemical Formation of Silicon

A template‐free electrochemical preparation of silicon nanotubes (Si‐NT) is herein achieved by co‐electrolysis of SiO 2 and AgCl in molten NaCl–CaCl 2 at 850 C. The in situ electrodeposited Ag facilitates the generation of a liquid Ag–Si intermediate, triggering a liquid–solid mechanism to direct the growth of Si‐NT.

In situ synthesis and characterization of pure SiC

The nanowires possess Si–C chemistry. The length and thickness of the nanowires are generally from several tens to over 100 μm and ∼80 nm, respectively. The process also demonstrated the possibility of in situ deposition of thin graphite coatings on the SiC

based molten salts.[44,45] Mai et al.[46] reported that Si nanowires can be prepared by electrode position in molten NaCl-KCl-MgCl 2-CaSiO 3. Yin et al.[47] tested the Li storage properties of the electrolytic Si film obtained in molten CaCl 2-nano SiO 2, and the


Silicon nanowires are a kind of promising negative electrode material for lithium-ion batteries. However, the existing production technologies can hardly meet the demands of silicon nanowires in quality and production ability. In this paper, silicon nanowires are successfully prepared by molten salt electrolysis in a pilot-plant. The pilot-plant was successfully operated for 14 months with a

Enhancing the lithiation rate of silicon nanowires by the

Silicon (Si) has a very high lithium storage capacity and is being explored as a negative electrode material in lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Si nanowires can exhibit relatively stable performance for many cycles of charging; however, conductive carbon must often be added to the electrode layer to improve the rate capability due to the relatively low electrical conductivity of Si.

A Systematic Study on Vapor

The involvement of graphite and Ar flow simultaneously has been suggested to be necessary through the experiments observations and rational comparison. With a 50 nm ZnO coated silicon substrate subjected to the annealing at ~800-900 o C for 1 hour in absence of graphite and carrier gas, 20-50 nm ZnO nanoislands formed quite uniformly (Fig. 3).

Abstract: Large-scale silicon nanowires (SiNWs), which consist of a crystalline silicon core and a thick oxide shell with a length of tens of micrometers, were synthesized by evaporation of silicon monoxide (SiO) using a gold-coated silicon wafer as substrate in a low vacuum CVD system.
