We report on the growth of microns long Mn‐catalyzed GaAs nanowires. α‐Mn is found on top of the wires, demonstrating that Mn acts as the growth catalyst. Transport measurements show that the wires have a p‐behavior. Luminescence shows a peak at 1.522 eV. The blue shift with respect to bulk GaAs is not due to quantum effects.
