SEM image, XRD pattern, and TEM and HRTEM images of the synthesized InSb nanowires. (a) A SEM image showing the well-aligned, dense InSb. (b) XRD pattern of the synthesized InSb nanowires. (c) A TEM image of InSb nanowires revealing the preferred growth orientation being along , in which the image reveals the diameter (200 nm) of the InSb nanowires. Inset: EDX spectrum showing the composition of the synthesized InSb nanowire. (d) An enlarged HRTEM image showing the clear lattice spacings of atomic planes being about 0.37 and 0.32 nm. The inset is a FFT image.
