    Low Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition (LPCVD) of hexamethyldigermane (GeMe3)2 was used for synthesis of Germanium Nanowires (GeNWs). Pressure during the deposition process was maintained at 90-100 Pa and temperature fixed at 490 °C. GeNWs of several nanometers in diameter and a few microns in length were deposited on various substrates - stainless steel, Fe, Mo, Ta, W, Si, and SiO2. Si and SiO2 substrates were modified by sputtering Ge to promote GeNW growth. Influence of surface pretreatment (surface roughness or Ge sputtering) is discussed in respect to the previous published theory of intermetalic solution. The results conclude that another mechanism should be taken into account – sticking of oncoming Ge based fragments, clusters etc. on the substrate surface, their nucleation and formation of Ge seeds appropriate for initiation of the GeNW growth. Samples were studied by SEM with EDX, (HR)TEM, FTIR and Raman spectroscopy.
