Abstract

A method is described for obtaining large quantities of high-purity crystalline GaN nanowires through vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) growth using indium metal as a catalyst. The resulting nanowires have a preferred growth direction. The strong photoluminescence of the nanowires in the UV region suggests possible applications in nanotechnological optoelectronic devices.
