Summary: Co3O4 nanowire arrays freely standing on nickel foam were prepared by a hydrothermal method.
As shown in Figure 3, nanowire array structure not only increased light absorption length, but also concentrated the light field which results from an increased excitation of photo induced carriers.

California, March 28 -- Sunnyvale, CA and Xiamen China and Munich Germany CAM Holdings, the parent company of Cambrios Advanced Materials Corporation, the leader in silver nanowire inks, announces the setup of a subsidiary in Xiamen, China, in an effort to expand and accelerate the use of silver nanowire technology in end products.
The thermal treatment of the impregnated PC membrane attached to the silicon substrate was performed in an electric oven under aerial atmosphere at a heating rate of 5[degrees]C.[min.sup.-1] in two temperature steps: the first at 350[degrees]C for two hours for the organic matter pyrolysis, and the second at 700[degrees]C for two hours to obtain the nanowire oxide structure definition.
