Abstract

Large-scale SiO 2 nanowires were synthesized by using a simple but an effective approach at low temperature. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy were employed to characterize the samples. The results indicated that SiO 2 nanowires with a uniform diameter of about 20 nm and a length up to 10 μm have been synthesized. Photoluminescence measurement showed that the SiO 2 nanowires emitted blue light at 2.8 and 3.0 eV. The possible growth process of the SiO 2 nanowires is discussed. Using this method, large panels of SiO 2 nanowires can be made under conditions that are suitable for device fabrication.
