Abstract

Carbon-assisted synthesis of silicon nanowires has been accomplished with silicon powders as well as solid substrates. The method involves heating an intimate mixture of silicon powder and activated carbon or a carbon coated solid substrate in argon at 1200–1350 °C, and yields abundant quantities of crystalline nanowires. Besides being simple, the method eliminates the use of metal catalysts.
