Abstract

A "step-edge" model has been proposed to explain the growth of solid nanotips of aluminum nitride (AlN) and indium nitride (InN) grown by thermal and metal organic chemical vapor depositions, respectively. The model predicts a set of apex angles that solid AlN and InN nanotips can have. A statistical distribution of the apex angle in InN nanotips indicates the discrete set of apex angles and its probability of nucleation.
