Vapor–Liquid–Solid Growth of Nanowires

Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)


In Chap. 4, the “vapor-liquid-solid” growth method of nanowire synthesis is considered catalyzed by metal particles. We present the advanced growth modeling of “vapor-liquid-solid” nanowires. This includes the size-dependent limitations on the growth rate, the mononuclear growth, the diffusion-induced contributions, and the two-dimensional nucleation at the liquidsolid interface or at the triple phase line. Theoretical predictions are compared with relevant experimental data.
