Abstract: We successfully synthesized high quality single crystal Si nanowires using Al catalyst via vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) mechanism, having diameters ranging from 10 to 200 nm with 10-20 (Jin of length. Characterization of physical and chemical properties of Al-catalyzed Si nanowires using transmission electron microscope (TEM), scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis showed that single crystal Si nanowires can be grown with Al-catalyst at 540 °C and selective etching of Al existing at the tip of nanowire can provide metal-free Si nanowires that are compatible with conventional Si-based IC process. By using plasma doping method, it was confirmed that the doping level can be controlled and the boron was successfully introduced on Si substrate with 3x1022/cm3 of peak doping concentration. © 2007 Materials Research Society.
