Abstract

Multiple etching pathways for the formation of porous Si nanostructures are visualized with the addition of ethylene glycol in metal-assisted chemical etching. The monotonic transition from solid to porous morphologies of Si nanostructures along with remarkable photoluminescence (PL) emission efficiency and distinct wetting phenomena can be observed.
