Semiconductor nanowires have been widely studied for applications such as sensors, photovoltaics, field-effect transistors, and lasers due to their unique physical properties. However, controlling the density and alignment of nanowires over large-area is still challenging for commercial applications. In this project, we plan to design programmable nanowire integration and actuation methods using soft matters. Field-effect transistors and sensing devices will be tested.
