Fabrication and Structure Characterization of Te Butterfly Nanostructures
Abstract:Te nanowires and butterfly nanostructures have been fabricated by template-free electrodeposition (TFED) in aqueous solution. By high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) study, the favored growth directions of the nanowires and the wings of the butterfly nanostructures were determined to be along the  direction of trigonal Te, and the twinning plane of the butterfly nanostructures was (11-22). The cathodoluminescence measurements carried out at different positions of the butterfly nanostructure indicated that the twin boundaries influenced the photoemission efficiency.
