View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Growth of Group IV nanowires with a substrate and a Group IV metalloid is performed using resistive or inductive heating of the substrate. A roll-to-roll process enables a metal surface to move through a reaction environment while reacting with a stream or bath of precursor to form the nanowire-metal complex. The Group IV nanowires on a surface of the substrate can have a surface loading greater than 10 mg/cm.sup.2.
