NEST Scientific Report 2007-2009 Transport phenomena in self-assembled nanowires

Summary: NEST Scientific Report 2007-2009
Transport phenomena in self-assembled nanowires
elf-assembled nanowires (NWs) are emerging as a versatile and powerful tool for
the study of transport phenomena at the nanoscale. NWs can be shaped in the form
complex axial and radial heterostructures in which normally incompatible materials
can be combined into advanced in some cases unprecedented nanostructures. Such a
level of flexibility makes it possible to explore innovative research directions. In particular,
NW activities at NEST are presently focusing on the investigation of the interplay between
nanomechanics and charge transport in self-assembled structures as well as Josephson
coupling in devices combining superconductive elements and InAs/InP and InSb
NWs represent a promising example of
the bottom-up approach to nanoscience
and technology [1-4]. The vapor-liquid-
solid growth mechanism at the basis of
NW technology makes it possible to
design and fabricate in a very controllable
way complex nanometer-scale structures
