    High-quality α -tetragonal crystalline boron nanobelts with [001] growth axis were synthesized using a novel method combining e-beam evaporation and plasma ion bombardment techniques. Intensive ion bombardment of the growing boron nanobelts at a high substrate temperature (∼1200 °C) was found to be effective in increasing the atomic density, reducing the crystal disorder, and improving the yield of the nanobelts.
