Formation of structures with noncatalytic CdTe nanowires

Semiconductors Aims and scope Submit manuscript

Abstract

The processes of the noncatalytic synthesis of structures with CdTe nanowires by magnetron sputtering deposition are studied. It is shown that the deposition of magnetron sputtered CdTe onto substrates covered by a porous SiO2 layer can result in CdTe nanowires formation. The porosity of SiO2 layers with thicknesses from 2 to 15 nm fabricated by magnetron sputtering deposition is estimated.
