Epitaxial growth of magnetic nanowires by chemical vapor transport

H. Lee; S. Kim; B. Kim    Department of Chemistry, KAIST, Daejeon 305-701, Korea


This chapter provides some background on the epitaxial growth of various nanowires (NWs) with interesting magnetic properties that have been developed using a simple and robust chemical vapor transport (CVT) technique. To epitaxially grow single-crystalline magnetic NWs, a suitable single-crystalline substrate should be used, and the reaction conditions need to be specifically optimized. This chapter discusses the diffusion-driven crystal structure transformation method after a CVT reaction, as well as a direct one-step CVT reaction, as synthetic approaches to obtaining epitaxial arrays ...
