Various methods and systems are provided for production of nanowires or other nanomaterials. In one example, among others, a system includes a furnace configured to heat at least a portion of a tube, a material feeder coupled to a first end of the tube, and a vacuum pumping system coupled to a second end of the tube. The material feeder can include a source material manipulator that can position a source material in a fixture of a feeder arm and a linear manipulator that can extend the fixture into the tube, where it can be heated to produce a precursor vapor that can be used to form a nanomaterial on a substrate. In another example, a method includes extending a fixture holding source material into a furnace tube, drawing a precursor vapor produced from the source material across a substrate in the furnace tube, and forming nanomaterial on the substrate.
