Copper oxide nanowires synthetized by facile route for electrical application



Abstract. Copper oxides have been synthesized by thermal oxidation of copper foils (Cu); the textural and structural properties of the films were characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The effect of annealing temperature on the morphology of the nanowires is studied; it is found that the annealing temperature plays an important role in the morphology and in the crystallite size of CuO. Synthesis conditions, such as temperature and the nature of substrate, which is of importance for practical applications.
