Title: Synthesis and properties of single-crystal {beta}{sub 3}-Ni{sub 3}Si nanowires

Abstract

Single-crystal Ni{sub 3}Si nanowires were synthesized by a chemical vapor transport method, using iodine as the transport reagent. Structural characterization using powder x-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and energy dispersive spectroscopy confirms that the nanowires are the monoclinic {beta}{sub 3}-Ni{sub 3}Si phase. Four-terminal electrical measurements show that the single-crystal nanowires have a resistivity of 72 {mu}{omega} cm and are capable of supporting a high failure current density about 1.7x10{sup 7} A/cm{sup 2}. These unique Ni{sub 3}Si nanowires are attractive nanoscale building blocks for interconnects and for fully silicided gate application in nanoelectronics.
