What’s Vapor Liquid Solid (VLS) Process? 1. Source material sublimates forming a vapor phase 2. Upon the coming of source vapor, catalyst melts forming a liquid alloy droplet 3. The droplet saturates when source vapor keeps coming 4. Solute precipitates out from the droplet forming a solid 1D nanostructure Alloy droplet Source Vapor Metal catalyst Source Vapor Precipitate Grow Source Vapor A Au-Ge system
