The molecular-beam epitaxy growth of single crystalline ZnSe nanowires with uniform diameters on GaP(111) substrates was reported. It was shown that the growth process was based on the Au-catalyzed vapor-liquid-solid deposition. Along the (111) plane, the dominant defects were found to be twins at the interface between the substrate and the nanowires.
