The electrical transport properties of individual vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) nanowires containing a ribbon-like structure were investigated. Individual V2O5 fibers were successful-deposited in chemically-modified SiO2 substrates. The electrical conduction through thin (approximately 10 nm) V2O5 networks behaved similarly to thicker (0.1-1 μm) V2O5 xerogels. Individual V2O5 fibers deposited on prefabricated electrodes revealed nonlinear current-voltage characteristics with high resistance. Increased conductivity was achieved by deposition of AuPd electrodes on top of the fibers.
