BPN382: 2D Individually-Addressable Nanowire Arrays


Semiconductor nanowires have recently stimulated great interest due to their attractive and potentially very useful properties, originating from features such as carrier confinement, high surface to volume ratio, and morphology/crystal structure unique to their nanoscale dimension and bottom-up growth process. These properties lead to many possible applications such as room temperature ballistic conductors for high-frequency/high-powered integrated circuits, UV/visible/IR nanolasers and waveguides, as well as sensors for chemical and biological agents. The systematic assembly and integration of nanowires into electrical and electro-optical devices, however, remain a formidable challenge. The goal of this project is to address this problem and develop a novel 2D individually-addressable nanowire array to serve as the platform for future device applications.
