Silicon nanowires grown in place

Abstract:
Researchers from the Oregon Health and Science University and Sharp Laboratories of America have found a way to grow nanowires between pairs of metal electrodes deposited on silicon wafers. The process is a step toward a new way to make smaller, faster electronics components. The researchers used an electric field to direct the growth of silicon nanowires between specific electrodes, and used electrodes that have sharp points to ensure that the nanowires and electrodes are in good contact with each other.
