    In this work, we compare the synthesis of germanium nanowires (GeNWs) using a highly localized heat source with GeNWs synthesized in a uniform temperature environment. With the exception of thermal environment, identical synthesis parameters were maintained in all experiments. The localized heat...

    The temperature-dependent optical properties of ZnO nanosheets and nanowires fabricated on conductive brass substrates with different surface-to-volume ratios and morphologies are investigated. The near band edge and deep-level emission mechanisms are studied. The blueshifted donor bound exciton...
