We combine a proposed approach to fabricate self-organized nanowires, which are grown in trenched templates, with a periodic strain field of a buried misfit dislocation network or a compliant substrate to guide the kinetic roughening and coarsening process in the formation of the template. Numerical simulations of the directed self-organization process show the possibility to form perfectly ordered parallel trenches with adjustable period, which allows to grow extended nanowires.
