Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A multi-scale, multi-phase thermokinetic model is used to show the effective control of the growth orientation of thin Si nanowires for nanoelectronic devices enabled by nanoscale plasma chemistry. It is shown that very thin Si nanowires with [110] growth direction can nucleate at much lower process temperatures and pressures compared to thermal chemical vapor deposition where [111]-directed Si nanowires are predominantly grown. These findings explain a host of experimental results, and offer the possibility of energy- and matter-efficient, size- and orientation-controlled growth of [110] Si nanowires for next-generation nanodevices.
