Topological qubits based on Majorana fermions have the potential to revolutionize the emerging field of quantum computing by making information processing significantly more robust to decoherence. In this Letter, we report gold-free templated growth of III-V NWs by molecular beam epitaxy using an approach that enables patternable and highly regular branched NW arrays on a far greater scale than what has been reported thus far. Our approach relies on the lattice-mismatched growth of InAs on top of defect-free GaAs nanomembranes (NMs) yielding laterally-oriented, low-defect InAs and InGaAs NWs.
