Summary, in English

Complex tree-like nanostructures with controlled morphology are becoming increasingly important for the development of nanoscale devices. The position of branches on III-V semiconductor nanotrees is determined by the distribution of Au seed particles. Here we report the dependence of the distribution of Au aerosol nanoparticles on nanowires on parameters including distance between wires, particle size, wire length, wire diameter, III-V material and particle charge. It was observed that different wire lengths and separation distances as well as different particle polarities have a significant effect on the resulting particle distribution while different wire diameters, particle diameters, materials and deposition voltages do not.
