Abstract

Silicon nanowires (SiNWs) with a diameter about a few nanometers and a length of tens of micrometers on silicon wafers were synthesized by thermal evaporation of silicon monoxide (SiO). The SiNWs were measured by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and Raman spectroscopy. TEM observations show that the silicon nanowires are smooth and EDS analysis indicates that the nanowires have the composition of Si and O elements. It was pointed out that the SiNWs possessed the well crystalline structure. Therefore, it is considered that SiO could be used as Si sources to produce larger-scale SiNWs and crystalline SiNWs may grow from amorphous nuclei.
