Abstract Cubic structured nanosprings, InP nanosprings, have been synthesized via a simple thermochemical process using InP and ZnS as the source materials. Each InP nanospring is formed by rolling up a single InP nanobelt with the growth direction along the <111> orientation. The formation of these novel nanostructures is mainly attributed to the minimization of the electrostatic energy due to the polar charges on the ±(002)side surfaces of cubic InP. Cathodoluminescence properties were also studied, which reveal that the InP nanosprings have three emission bands centered at <~736, <~920, and <~980 nm.
