Ge nanowires were synthesized on Si<100> substrates using Ag as a catalyst. The catalyst seeds were sputter deposited on the Si substrate at 2 exp-2 Torr and thereafter Ge was deposited. The catalytic effect of Ag to form nanowires of Ge was tested by looking at the samples using both SEM and AFM. Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (RBS) was also used to characterize the samples.
