The molybdenum bromide nanowire deposits in halogen lamps, opearting at relatively low coil and bulb temperatures, were investigated. It was found that the deposit does not form initially at the coldest spot and only slowly migrates towards the cooler lamp zones. It was suggested that the deposits were a rather dense carpet of monocrystalline fibers of 1000-2000 nm long and about 50 nm thick. The high aspect ratio found was suggested to be due to the anisotropic structure of MoBr3. U7 - Export Date: 2 August 2010 U7 - Source: Scopus
