Abstract

Coating of nanowires is being investigated to broaden potential uses for future applications. Coatings of Ni and Pt nanoparticles have been synthesized on silicon carbide nanowires by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition. Coatings with high particle densities with average particle diameters of 2.76 and 3.28 nm for Pt and Ni, respectively, were formed with narrow size distributions. Plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition appears to be an efficient method for production of metal coatings on nanowires.
