As a new topological insulator material, the -phase silver telluride (Ag₂Te) nanowire is a narrow bandgap semiconductor, which is attractive for its excellent properties. In this study, Ag₂Te nanowires were synthesized by one-step hydrothermalmethod. The nanowires showed good electrical properties with maximum drain-source voltage of 1.5 V, and the output current was up to 20 A. The gate voltage has a significant effect on output current for the device. The Ag₂Te nanowires will have more extensive and in-depth applications in the fields of optoelectronics and thermoelectricity.
