The synthesis of the faceted single-crystalline h-AlN nanotubes with the length of a few micrometers and diameters from 30 to 80 nm is first reported. This provides an ideal substrate for the construction of GaN-based nanoheterostructures in future nanoelectronics. The experimental results suggest the further extensive experimental and theoretical studies on the promising nonlayered nanotubular structures.
