Taper-free InP twinning superlattice (TSL) nanowires with an average twin spacing of ∼13 nm were grown along the zinc-blende close-packed [111] direction using metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy. The mechanical properties and fracture mechanisms of individual InP TSL nanowires in tension were ascertained by means of in situ uniaxial tensile tests in a transmission electron microscope. The elastic modulus, failure strain, and tensile strength along the [111] direction were determined. No evidence...[Show more]
