Single Crystal GaN Nanowires
Abstract:Single crystal gallium nitride nanowires have been obtained by heating gallium acetylacetonate in the presence of carbon nanotubes or activated carbon in NH3 vapor at 910 °C. GaN nanowires also were obtained when the reaction of gallium acetylacetonate with NH3 was carried out over catalytic Fe/Ni particles dispersed over silica. The former procedure with carbon nanotubes is preferable because it avoids the presence of metal particles in the nanowire bundles.
