A few of the interesting structures made by the assemblage of Si-Ge nanowires fabricated by the floating-zone melting-vapor method have been observed. They reveal shapes that are similar to coral, jellyfish and sea anemones. The pre-sintered substrate bar has some large crystalline particles (1-15 μm), which produce sites that are energetically predisposed to nucleation. The peculiar structures created by the assemblage of Si-Ge nanowires form on favored nucleation sites that consist of numerous bundles of nanowires with diameters of 20-50 nm. The periodic variation in the diameter of the bundles of nanowires is a common feature of these structures. In addition, a growth mechanism assisted by the coexistence of Ge and Si-Ge oxides is suggested. The growth process of these assemblages opens up new possibilities for the study of the growth mechanism of Si-Ge nanowires.
