Abstract: Substrate can play crucial rule in the growth of nanostructure for metal oxide (MOS), so variation in substrate can cause variety of nanostructure. In this study, SnO2 nanowire were grown on alumina, quartz and silicon substrates by thermal evaporation technique at atmospheric pressure. The effect of substrates on surface morphology and length to diameter ratio of tin oxide nanowire is presented in this work. The morphological and structural properties of nanowire have been investigated using scanning electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction.
