    Description

    Due to the unique properties of semiconductor nanowires, novel nanowire-based electronic and photonic devices with superior performance over existing devices are expected to revolutionise our technological world in the way of new devices and components. This Fellowship aims to investigate the synthesis of antimonide-based nanowires for infra-red and energy applications. Only through the understanding of fundamental growth mechanisms, unprecedented control of nanowire morphology, composition and crystal structure can be achieved. These nanowires would then be used to demonstrate a new class of optoelectronic devices working in the infra-red regime, such as photodetectors and solar cells, and pave the way for future technologies.
