Powder synthesis by thermally induced vapor phase reactions is described. The powder generated by this technique consists of spherical, nonagglomerated particles of high purity. The particles are uniform in size, in the 0.1–0.2 μm size range. Most of the particles are crystalline spheres. A small fraction of the spheres are amorphous. Chain agglomerates account for less than 1% of the spherules.

    Well-aligned ZnO nanorods arrays were fabricated by sintering powder Zn underneath a Si-SiO2 substrate. In this fabrication, ZnO was produced by the displacement reactions between Zn and SiO vapors. We found that these ZnO nanorods grew toward the [0001] direction. The diameter and the alignment...

    The photolysis of disilane (Si2H6) and trisilane (Si3H8) under direct excitation by light from a low pressure mercury lamp was carried out to prepare hydrogenated amorphous silicon films (a-Si:H). The electronic and optical properties of the films were investigated as functions of preparation...
