Self-assembled copper nanowire networks...

on layered-crystal surfaces are reported. Obtained from a simple thermal evaporation process in ultra high vacuum, they possess high mechanical strength and a significant elevation over a usually step-edge free surface. These features render Cu-induced nanowire networks particularly accessible to various techniques of microcharacterization such as AFM. (R. Adelung et al., August 5, Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 1056-1061)
