BPN526: Semiconducting Nanopillars for Photodiodes


The ability to grow high-quality, vertically oriented, single-crystalline nanopillar arrays non-epitaxially enables the fabrication of novel and potentially highly-efficient opto-electronic devices on arbitrary substrates. This project aims to exploit the optical and electronic properties of these structures to fabricate highly sensitive photodiodes on low-cost substrates. In addition, photodiodes will be fabricated from multiple semiconductor materials to explore devices sensitive to different wavelength ranges.
