Montazeri, Mohammad; Wade, A; Fickenscher, M A; Jackson, Howard E; Smith, Leigh M; Yarrison-Rice, Jan M; Gao, Qiang; Tan, Hoe Hark; Jagadish, Chennupati


The internal electronic structures of single semiconductor nanowires can be resolved using photomodulated Rayleigh scattering spectroscopy. The Rayleigh scattering from semiconductor nanowires is strongly polarization sensitive which allows a nearly background-free method for detecting only the light that is scattered from a single nanowire. While the Rayleigh scattering efficiency from a semiconductor nanowire depends on the dielectric contrast, it is relatively featureless as a function of...[Show more]
