We report on the successful fabrication of silicon quantum wires with SiO2 boundaries on SiGe/Si heterostructures by combining Si/SiGe/Si heteroepitaxy, selective chemical etching, and subsequent thermal oxidation. The observational result of scanning electron microscope is demonstrated. The present method provides a well-controllable way to fabricate silicon quantum wires.
