(Figure Presented) Group 5 telluride nanostructures have been grown through chemical vapor transport from the elements. The novel nanostructured chalcogenide Nb3Te4 (a cluster of Nb3Te 4 nanowires is pictured) is the first example of this type of nanowire grown with a pseudo-1D structural basis. The wires are single crystalline with longitudinal axes aligned along the crystallographic c axis. The nanowires are metallic but do not exhibit superconductivity above 1.8 K.
