    Abstract

    Single crystalline Ge nanowires have been fabricated by filtration of rod-shaped Ge precipitates from aged Al-Ge alloy using HCl solution. The diameter of the Ge nanowires ranged from 30 to 100 nm when the aging conditions of the Al-Ge alloy was altered. The Ge nanowires grow preferentially in the [1 1 0] direction, which is the same as observed earlier for rod-shaped Ge precipitates in the aged Al-Ge alloy.
