Chemical vapor deposition of nanowires

The objective of this program is to create prefabricated nanowires on an epitaxial buffer film template on flexible metal substrates followed by epitaxial growth of superconducting film thereby embedding the nanowires inside the superconducting film. Various oxide nanowires are being grown on biaxially-textured LaMnO3 surface by chemical vapor deposition.
