Metal-seeded growth of III-V semiconductor nanowires: Towards gold-free synthesis

Dick, Kimberley A.; Caroff, Philippe


Semiconductor nanowires composed of III-V materials have enormous potential to add new functionality to electronics and optical applications. However, integration of these promising structures into applications is severely limited by the current near-universal reliance on gold nanoparticles as seeds for nanowire fabrication. Although highly controlled fabrication is achieved, this metal is entirely incompatible with the Si-based electronics industry. In this Feature we review the progress...[Show more]
