The deposition of nanowires for interconnects in nanoelectronic devices werestudied morphologically by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and by in-situ resistance measurements. The deposition and basic characterization of nanometer size tungsten wires by gas injection (GIS) and focused ion beams (FIB) was carried out in-situ in a LEO 1540 XB workstation. The I(V) measurement showed that the deposited W wires have ohmic characteristic. The variation of the resistance during an ex-situ heating was linear with a low thermal coefficient (4% of the pure metallic W).
