Paper Abstract

A series of inorganic nanorods, nanowires, nanoribbons, and nanoscrolls have been synthesized in large-area arrays vertically aligned on metallic surfaces. The simple syntheses of the nanowire films are accomplished in situ by gas-solid and liquid-solid reactions under mild conditions. For the preparation of endohedral metallofullerene films, solution casting and electrochemical techniques are employed. The structural, optical, and electrical properties of the nanostructures have been characterized, which provide interesting prospects of these film materials in various applications. Potential uses of these films as passive and/or active components in dye-sensitized solar cells and gas sensors have been demonstrated in a number of preliminary experiments.
