We use spatially and temporally resolved photoluminescence to measure excitondiffusion in single zinc blende GaAs/AlGaAs core/shell and mixed phase InPnanowires.Excitons in the single phase GaAs/AlGaAs nanowires are seen to diffuse rapidly throughout the nanowire with a measured diffusion constant ranging from 45 to 100 cm²/s, while in the mixed phase, InPnanowireelectrons and holes are seen to rapidly localize to the quantum confined states in the zinc blende and wurtzite segments,...[Show more]
