Band offsets at zincblende-wurtzite GaAs nanowire sidewall surfaces

Capiod, P.; Xu, T.; Nys, J. P.; Berthe, M.; Patriarche, G.; Lymperakis, L.; Neugebauer, J.; Caroff, P.; Dunin-Borkowski, R. E.; Ebert, Ph.; Grandidier, B.


The band structure and the Fermi level pinning at clean and well-ordered sidewall surfaces of zincblende (ZB)-wurtzite (WZ) GaAs nanowires are investigated by scanning tunneling spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations. The WZ-ZB phase transition in GaAs nanowires introduces p-i junctions at the sidewall surfaces. This is caused by the presence of numerous steps, which induce a Fermi level pinning at different energies on the non-polar WZ and ZB sidewall facets.
