Synthesis of Metallic Nanowires Using Hydrothermal Method


Silver nanowire grow on FTO coated quartz substrate by using hydrothermal method, it can be observed that the morphology of the product is wire-like and nearly uniform in width (60 ± 10 nm), while the length is in a relatively broad range (from 0.2 to 4 µm) with an average at 2.5 µm. The calculated lattice constant according to the (111) peak is 4.08 Å which is closely consistent with the standard value (4.086 Å).
