Volatile CuOH as a precursor for the growth of CuO nanowires

Shalav, Avi; Elliman, Robert


A volatile vapor mediated mechanism for the growth of CuO nanowires grown at high temperatures under atmospheric conditions has been mostly disregarded in the literature since partial pressures are calculated to be less than required to sustain growth. In this study, we apply a simple kinetic theory to ascertain the critical partial pressure of volatile species required to support vapor mediated nanowire growth and show that this value can be met from a volatile hydroxide species. Although only...[Show more]
