Al-doped 6H-SiC nanowires are synthesized by catalyst-assisted pyrolysis of polymer precursors. The obtained nanowires were characterized using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and selective area electron diffraction. We demonstrate that doping concentrations can be controlled by tailoring the Al concentrations in the precursors. We also find that Al-doping has a profound effect on the morphology and emission behavior of the SiC nanowires. The current results suggest a simple technique for synthesizing Al-doped SiC nanomaterials in a controlled manner, which are promising for applications in optical and electronic nanodevices.
