Semiconductor nanowires show promise in electronic, optoelectronic, and sensing devices. To realize this promise, a fundamental understanding of charge injection and electronic transport in these novel nanomaterials is necessary. In this image, key electrical properties of individual nanowires (green) are measured by manipulating and positioning a conductive tip (blue).
These experiment results indicate that a broad range of electronic transport regimes can be observed in semiconducting nanowires depending on the particular material system and growth process.
