What is it about?

Nanotubes (NTs) and nanowires (NWs) are nanostructures with plenty of properties for multiple potential applications. We demonstrate a high electron conductivity ( -up to 1000 S/cm) of tungsten suboxide nanotubes. These tungsten suboxide nanostructures are prone to a wide range of applications in nanoelectronics.

Why is it important?

These tungsten suboxides were synthesized by a low cost and low thermal budget method, but they outperform previously reported results for tungsten suboxide nanostructures.


These highly conductive tungsten suboxide nanostructures are prone for applications in electrochromic devices and smart windows, transparent conducting electrodes, gas sensors, and field-emission electron source devices.
