Abstract We present a simple method of nanocrystal growth during the heating of Au-covered GaAs single crystals in a closed quartz ampoule. The process is the final stage of surface transformations in such crystals which include the disruption of initially continuous, 50 nm thick Au-layer and formation of Au-particle fractals in the relatively low 300-500 o C temperature range and a next step, when a variety of crystalline nanowires and even nanotubes grows on the crystal surface during the further short-period heating up to 550-650 o C. These nanostructures were indentified by SEM and TEM measurements as -Ga 2 O 3 and a nonstoichiometric arsenic oxide. It is supposed that the growth of few nanometer thick arsenic oxide tubes follows the vapour-solid mechanism, whereas the catalytic Au-metal growth of thicker -Ga 2 O 3 nanowires was dominated by the vapor-liquid-solid mechanism.
