We report simultaneous lateral growth of a high density of highly oriented, metal-catalyzed silicon nanowires on a patterned silicon substrate and bridging of nanowires between two vertical silicon sidewalls, which can be developed into electrodes of an electronic device. After angled deposition of catalytic metal nanoparticles on one of two opposing vertical silicon surfaces, we used a metal-catalyzed chemical vapour deposition process to grow nanowires and eventually form mechanically robustdoi:10.1088/0957-4484/15/5/l01 fatcat:w5oatgxyu5ceff6jexyq33tdo4
