This study introduces a simple approach for forming ladder-like nanowire arrays. The number of apparent steps of the ZnO nanowires could be increased by the number of vapor phase transport deposition processes. The growth of two diverse forms on different planes led to the ladder-like appearance of the nanowires: a coherent characteristic on ZnO{101̄0} prismatic planes and epitaxial growth on ZnO(0002) planes. The {101̄0} planes are much more stable than (0002) planes, and the {101̄0} planes permit boundaries procreation.
