Scalable flame synthesis of SiO2 nanowires: dynamics of growth

Tricoli, Antonio; Righettoni, M; Krumeich, F; Stark, Wendelin J; Pratsinis, S.E


Silica nanowire arrays were grown directly onto plain glass substrates by scalable flame spray pyrolysis of organometallic solutions (hexamethyldisiloxane or tetraethyl orthosilicate). The silicon dioxide films consisted of a network of interwoven nanowires from a few to several hundred nanometres long (depending on the process conditions) and about 20 nm in diameter, as determined by scanning electron microscopy. These films were formed rapidly (within 10-20 s) at high growth rates (ca 11-30...[Show more]
