We investigate the growth of vertically standing [100] zincblende InP nanowire (NW) arrays on InP (100) substrates in the vapor-liquid-solid growth mode using low-pressure metal-organic vapor-phase epitaxy. Precise positioning of these NWs is demonstrated by electron beam lithography. The vertical NW yield can be controlled by different parameters. A maximum yield of 56% is obtained and the tapering caused by lateral growth can be prevented by in situ HCl etching. Scanning electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, and micro-photoluminescence have been used to investigate the NW properties.
