Abstract

Electric-field assisted growth and self-assembly of intrinsic silicon nanowires, in-situ, is demonstrated. The nanowires are seen to respond to the presence of a localized DC electric field set up between adjacent MEMS structures. The response is expressed in the form of improved nanowire order, alignment, and organization while transcending a gap. This process provides a simple yet reliable method for enhanced control over intrinsic one-dimensional nanostructure placement and handling.
