Paper Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate the efficiency of porous anodic alumina (PAA) to confine the growth of silicon nanowires (SiNWs). High-density arrays of parallel, straight and organized SiNWs have been realized, by Hot Wire Chemical Vapor Deposition (HW-CVD) growth process inside PAA templates with electrodeposited copper as catalyst. The PAA was made by the anodization of an aluminium layer, followed by the catalysts electrodeposition at the bottom of the pores. Subsequently, SiNWs were grown in a modified HW-CVD reactor with SiH4 as the precursor gas. The morphology and the structure of the wires have been investigated by SEM and TEM, and their collective electrical behavior has been characterized with a 2-probes device.
