Periodic arrays of self-catalyzed GaAs nanowires are grown by gas-source MBE on nano-patterned oxidized Si substrates. The average nanowire length and diameter increase significantly with both time and increasing inter-wire spacing as revealed by growth of different duration under identical conditions. A mechanism for the radial and axial growth is proposed in this Letter, which accounts for the observed dependence on the pattern parameters.
