dc.description.abstractThe groundwork of this project is the application of CVD (chemical vapor deposition) to deposit thin layers of nanostructures; nanowires in particular. Methods and mechanisms will be studied in detail along with thermodynamic characteristics of material systems. Full understanding of such conditions will then allow for the enhancement of these mechanisms to fully optimize the nanowire production. A great deal of research is being accomplished to study nano materials’ properties and growth, but, to take advantage of their enhanced properties, methods to produce nano materials in significant quantities is critical to their commercial integration. This project aims to produce such materials in large quantities, of high purity, and of high stability, while maintaining enhanced electrical and optical properties.en
