We report on control of growth directions of InAs nanowires on Si substrate. We achieved to integrate vertical InAs nanowires on Si by modifying initial Si(111) surface in selective-area metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy with flow-rate modulation mode at low temperature. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscope and Raman scattering showed that misfit dislocation with local strains were accommodated in the interface.
