Uniform and smooth BN coatings on SiC nanowires...

have been obtained by a simple vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) process using Ni as catalyst. SiO and B2O2 gases, simultaneously generated by heating boron and silicon oxide at high temperature, are used as precursors for the VLS growth. The BN coated semiconductor nanowires could be useful for a wide range of electronic applications. (C. C. Tang et al., August 5, Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 1046-1049)
