Abstract During growth of InAs nanowires (NWs) on GaAs(111), the self-inclined InAs NWs were reproducibly observed. At the self-inclined interface, the h.c.p. InAs phase was transformed into another f.c.c. InAs phase. In order to investigate the crystallography of phase transformation, a recently-developed model, edge-to-edge matching (E2EM), was applied in such self-inclined NWs for crystallographic investigation. The orientation relationships (ORs), between f.c.c. InAs and h.c.p. InAs, were predicted using the E2EM model, which agrees well with experimental results. The results indicate the importance of crystallographic study in design and construction of nanostructured semiconductors with improved physical properties.
