Sublimation is an interesting phenomenon that is frequently observed in nature. The thermal behavior of the InAs NWs
with As-face polarity and the [ ] growth direction of the zinc-blende structure was studied by using in situ transmission -
electron microscopy (TEM). In this study, the anisotropic morphological and atomistic evolution of InAs nanowires (NWs)
was observed during decomposition. Two specific phenomena were observed during the continuous heating of the NWs in
the TEM: the decomposition of the InAs NWs around 380 °C, much lower than the melting temperature, and the formation
of particular crystallographic facets during decomposition. The low decomposition temperature is related to vaporization
under the vacuum conditions of the TEM. The anisotropic decomposition of the InAs NWs during heating can be explained
based on the polarity and the surface energy difference of the zinc-blende structure of InAs. For example, the decomposition
along the [111] direction (that is, the indium-atom-terminated plane) was continuous, resulting in a few high-index planes,
for example, (022), ( ), and (200), whereas that in the opposite direction (the [ ] direction) occurred abruptly with
the formation of ledges and steps on the ( ) planes, accompanied by the generation of small grooves on the surface of
the NWs. Finally, density functional theory calculations were conducted to understand the sublimation of the InAs NWs from
a theoretical point of view. This study is meaningful that it provides an insight into the microstructural evolution of polar
nanomaterials during heating by theoretical and experimental approaches.
