      High yield-low temperature growth of indium sulphide nanowires via chemical vapor deposition 

      Zervos, Matthew; Papageorgiou, P.; Othonos, A. (2010)
      Indium sulphide nanowires (NWs) have been grown on Si via the reaction of In and InCl3 with H2S using chemical vapor deposition at temperatures as low as 250 °C. We find that the growth of InxSy NWs via the direct reaction ...

      Synthesis of Tin nitride Sn xN y nanowires by chemical vapour deposition 

      Zervos, Matthew; Othonos, A. (2009)
      Tin nitride (Sn xN y) nanowires have been grown for the first time by chemical vapour deposition on n-type Si(111) and in particular by nitridation of Sn containing NH 4Cl at 450 °C under a steady flow of NH 3. The Sn xN ...
