Nanowires and Nanorods

(a) Top view of nanotube network. (b) Tilted SEM micrograph of
nanotube network.

The images at the left show the results of carbon nanotube growth between self-assembled silicon-germanium quantum dots, forming a network of suspended nanotubes. The nanotubes were grown by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) at a temperature of 900 C.
