One Dimensional Nanomaterials: Preparation, Structures, and Assembly

Author(s): Yingjun Liu, Zuwei Ma, Seeram Ramakrishna.


Due to the remarkable specific physical and chemical properties as well as the potential application, onedimensional (1D) nanomaterials, such as nanowires, nanofibers, nanobelts, nanorods, etc., have attracted great research interests. This paper explores the fabrication strategies that enable rational design and predictable production of 1D nanomaterials, such as crystallization and electrospinning, discusses several methods for generating heterostructured 1D nanomaterials, and ends by evaluation of several large quantity and high quality bottom-up techniques for building up nanostructures using 1D nanomaterials, both ex situ assembly and in situ growth.

Keywords: Nanowire, Nanofiber, Electrospinning, Nanoelectronics
