Abstract

Through a facile and highly repeatable chemical vapor method, pure three-dimensional hyperbranched Zn 3As 2 structures and ultralong Ga 2O 3 nanowires were simultaneously grown with controllable locations in the same experiment. The hyperbranched Zn 3As 2 consists of cone- shaped submicro-/nanowires and has a single-crystalline tetragonal structure. This is the first report of nano Zn 3As 2 and hyperbranched Zn 3As 2 structures. The as-grown Ga 2O 3 nanowires are monoclinic single crystals. A vapor-solid-solid mechanism is suggested for the growth of the Ga 2O 3 nanowires, and a vapor-solid mechanism, for the Zn 3As 2 structures.
