Study of iron-catalysed growth of β-Ga2O3 nanowires and their detailed characterization using TEM, Raman and cathodoluminescence techniques Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract In this paper, we demonstrate a new catalyst (Fe) to grow single crystalline beta- gallium oxide (β-Ga 2 O 3) nanowires (NWs) via the vapour–liquid–solid mechanism using the chemical vapour deposition technique. The structural studies of these NWs showed the highly crystalline monoclinic phase of Ga 2 O 3. This was confirmed by detailed scanning transmission electron microscope investigations demonstrating the NW to be single crystalline β-Ga 2 O 3, growing along the normal of the $({1 {\rm {\bar 1\bar 1}}}) $ plane …
