Gallium phosphide nanowires were synthesized by sublimation of ball-milled powders and are straight, cylindrical, and smooth in surface, with mean diameter of 40 nm and length up to 300 μm; they have a single-crystalline zinc blende structure with [111] growth direction; X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy reveal a high degree of crystallinity of the nanowires; photoluminescence, exciting with a 458 nm laser line, shows a broad donor-acceptor pair peak and its replicas in the energy range 2.05-2.20 eV.
