Towards large-scale plasma-assisted synthesis of nanowires

U Cvelbar 1, *
Abstract : Large quantities of nanomaterial like nanowires are needed to overcome large market price of nanomaterial and make nanotechnology widely available for general public use and applications to numerous devices. Therefore, there is enormous need for new methods or routes for synthesis of those nanostructures. Here plasma technologies for synthesis of nanowires, nanotubes, nanoparticles or other nanostructures might play a key role in the near future. This paper presents a 3-dimensional problem of large-scale synthesis connected with the time, quantity and quality of nanostructures. Herein 4 different plasma methods for nanowire synthesis are presented in the contrast to other methods e.g. thermal processes, chemical vapor deposition or wet chemical processes. The pros and cons are discussed in detail for the case of two metal oxides: iron oxide and zinc oxide nanowires, which are important for many applications.
