Wang, Y and Joyce, HJ and Gao, Q and Liao, X and Tan, HH and Zou, J and Ringer, SP and Shan, Z and Jagadish, C (2011) Self-healing of fractured GaAs nanowires. Nano Lett, 11. pp. 1546-1549.Full text not available from this repository.
In-situ deformation experiments were carried out in a transmission electron microscope to investigate the structural response of single crystal GaAs nanowires (NWs) under compression. A repeatable self-healing process was discovered in which a partially fractured GaAs NW restored its original single crystal structure immediately after an external compressive force was removed. Possible mechanisms of the self-healing process are discussed.
