Abstract

The realization of a 3D network of self-assembled conductive nanowires embedded within an insulating matrix is demonstrated. The lengths, three-dimensional configurations and electrical connectivity of test wire networks are characterized. straight conducting wires as thin as 24 nm were produced with lengths up to 100 um.
