Nanowires have lateral dimensions on the nanometer scale, with a length-to-width aspect ratio of 1000 or greater. Nanowires can exhibit optical, electrical, and mechanical properties that are different from their bulk equivalent. Plasma has been applied to enhance surface hydrophilicity and prepare nanowires for further studies of their unique materials properties.
