Controlled polytypic and twin-plane superlattices in III-V nanowires

Caroff, Philippe; Dick, Kimberley A.; Johansson, Jonas; Messing, Maria E; Deppert, Knut; Samuelson, Lars


Semiconductor nanowires show promise for use in nanoelectronics, fundamental electron transport studies, quantum optics and biological sensing. Such applications require a high degree of nanowire growth control, right down to the atomic level. However, many binary semiconductor nanowires exhibit a high density of randomly distributed twin defects and stacking faults, which results in an uncontrolled, or polytypic, crystal structure. Here, we demonstrate full control of the crystal structure of...[Show more]
