Structural investigation of tungsten oxide nanowires by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 06 March 2012
X-ray diffraction, selected area electron diffraction, and high-resolution transmission electron microscope techniques were used to investigate the crystalline structures of one-dimensional tungsten oxide nanowires prepared by the hydrothermal method. The as-synthesized products were found to exhibit increasing crystallinity with increasing reaction time, and tungsten oxide nanowires have crystalline defects, including stacking faults, dislocations, and vacancies. The results on the crystal defects help us to obtain a better understanding of the temperature-dependent morphological evolution of the ultrathin nanowires synthesized under different thermal processes.
