TEM morphologies, HRTEM images and FFT diagrams. TEM morphology (a) of a CdS nanoneedle grown at the substrate temperature of 400°C (in VS mode), with a SEAD pattern in left upper inset and high-resolution image in right upper inset; (b and c) TEM morphologies, HRTEM images, and FFT diagrams (at different locations) of the CdS nanoneedles grown at the 475°C substrate temperature. Panel (b) shows a CdS nanoneedle (grown in VLS mode) with a half ball of the mixture of CdS and Ni on the top; panel (c) shows a main CdS nanoneedle (grown in VLS mode) with a secondary CdS nanoneedle (grown in VS mode) on the top.
