Highly ordered boron nanowire multiple nanojunctions (see Figure) with unilateral feather-like morphology have been created via a simple magnetron sputtering method. These T- and Y-type nanojunctions stand freely in line to form uniform and well-oriented arrays on the substrate surface over areas of up to several tens of square centimeters.
