Twinning and polytypism are shown to influence the morphology of van der Waals epitaxial nanostructures. Consequently, the growth of vertically aligned nanorods and epitaxial branched crystals (tripods and tetrapods) from ZnTe can be achieved using only a single type of substrate. Crystalline characterization of the various structures is performed with extensive electron microscopy technqiues and corroborated with atomic models.
