Abstract
We present details on the CdTe nanowires formation, which were found to grow in a standard physiological phosphate-buffered solution, including in-situ observation of growth with a confocal microscope. The choice of proper nanocrystals concentration allowed reasonably slow growth rates and thus a controllable formation of nanowires. Once formed in solution, nanowires showed a significant degree of structural rigidity and resistance to externally applied mechanical stress. Luminescence and Raman spectroscopy data evidence on re-crystallization processes during the nanowire formation.
