[Silicon carbide nanowires (SiCNW)]
Chemical characteristics; Insoluble in water.
Purpose for use; The SiCNW are a wide-band-gap semiconductor with high breakdown field strength, high thermal conductivity, high saturation drift velocity, and strong resistance to harsh environments. These properties make SiCNW a promising material for use in producing high-temperature, high-power, and high-frequency nanoeletronic devices. The SiCNW also have high mechanical strength and therefore good candidates for use in metal and ceramic matrix composites, as a polymer ingredient, and as materials for dental and orthopedic implants.
