Highly controllablefabrication of the nanowire, nanocone, and mixed nanowire/nanowall arrays of iron oxide (hematite, α-Fe2O3) nanostructures in a simple, environment-friendly process is achieved by exposing the metal foils to low-temperature oxygen plasmas. Very dense forests of thin (≈50 nm) and long (up to several μm) nanowires are grown on the electrically biased substrates, whereas the use of the electrically insulated substrate resulted in the formation of a mixed array of nanowires and nanowalls. The proposed mechanism of the nanostructure growth is supported by the numerical simulations demonstrating the key role of the plasma environment in the growth morphology selection.

2 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
