Sub-20 nm Si/Ge superlattice nanowires by metal-assisted etching
Nano Lett. 9 (9) (2009), 3106-3110

An effective and low-cost method to fabricate hexagonally patterned, vertically aligned Si/Ge superlattice nanowires with diameters below 20 nm is presented. By combining the growth of Si/Ge superlattices by molecular beam epitaxy, prepatterning the substrate by anodic aluminum oxide masks, and finally metal-assisted chemical wet etching, this method generates highly ordered hexagonally patterned nanowires. This technique allows the fabrication of nanowires with a high area density of 1010 wires/cm2, including the control of their diameter and length.
