  • We have investigated the carrier relaxation process during photoconduction in quasi-one-dimensional (Q1D) ZnO nanowires (NWs) of diameters 29-36 nm on different substrates using photocurrent transient measurements. Ultraviolet (UV) sensitive NWs show around three to four orders of change in the photo-to-dark current ratio. Under steady UV illumination, the photocarrier relaxation occurs through two-electron process--carrier loss due to the trapping by the surface states and recombination at the deep defect states. The results demonstrate that the carrier relaxation during photoconduction in Q1D NWs of diameter comparable to the Debye length is also dominated by the surface states.
  • Quasi one dimensional systems can suffer local structural failures-broadly defined-along their length: for instance, carbon nanotubes can collapse, nanowires can show bottlenecks below which conductance drops, bubbles open in DNA. We present a formalism to explore the occurrence of those thermally activated failures in complete generality, to calculate the average length between them as a function of the thermodynamic observables.
  • Nb{sub 2}PdS{sub 5} is a newly discovered quasi-one-dimensional (quasi-1D) superconductor with a high upper critical field along the chain direction. Here, we report the size-dependent electronic properties of Nb{sub 2}PdS{sub 5} nanowires obtained by ultrasonically cleaving the bulk crystals. The nanowires exhibit a superconductor to insulator transition as the cross-sectional area decreases. Moreover, for the thinner nanowires with insulating state, the transport properties exhibit a power-law dependence on both temperature and bias voltage at an intermediate temperature (<30 K), followed by a conduction saturation below 10 K. We found that such an apparent power-law behavior can be described by the extended variablemore » range hopping theory developed recently for the multichannel quasi-1D systems, where the localization of electrons is expected to be dominant instead of the Luttinger liquid nature.« less
  • In this paper, we report a new quasi-one-dimensional compound KMn 6Bi 5 composed of parallel nanowires crystallizing in a monoclinic space group C2/m with a = 22.994(2) Å, b = 4.6128(3) Å, c = 13.3830(13) Å and β = 124.578(6)°. The nanowires are infinite [Mn 6Bi 5] - columns each of which is composed of a nanotube of Bi atoms acting as the cladding with a nanorod of Mn atoms located in the central axis of the nanotubes. The nanorods of Mn atoms inside the Bi cladding are stabilized by Mn–Mn bonding and are defined by distorted Mn-centered cluster icosahedramore » of Mn 13 sharing their vertices along the b axis. The [Mn 6Bi 5] - nanowires are linked with weak internanowire Bi–Bi bonds and charge balanced with K + ions. The [Mn 6Bi 5] - nanowires were directly imaged by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and scanning transmission electron microscopy. Magnetic susceptibility studies show one-dimensional characteristics with an antiferromagnetic transition at ~75 K and a small average effective magnetic moment (1.56 μ B/Mn for H ∥ b and 1.37 μ B/Mn for H ⊥ b) of Mn from Curie–Weiss fits above 150 K. Specific heat measurements reveal an electronic specific heat coefficient γ of 6.5(2) mJ K –2(mol-Mn) -1 and a small magnetic entropy change ΔS mag ≈ 1.6 J K –1 (mol-Mn) -1 across the antiferromagnetic transition. Finally, in contrast to a metallic resistivity along the column, the resistivity perpendicular to the column shows a change from a semiconducting behavior at high temperatures to a metallic one at low temperatures, indicating an incoherent-to-coherent crossover of the intercolumn tunneling of electrons.« less
  • Inelastic neutron-scattering profiles of spin waves in the dilute quasi-one-dimensional Ising-like antiferromagnet CsCo{sub 0.83}Mg{sub 0.17}Br{sub 3} have been investigated. Calculations of S{sup xx}(Q,{omega}), based on an effective spin Hamiltonian, accurately describe the experimental spin-wave spectrum of the 2J mode. The Q dependence of the energy of this spin-wave mode follows the analytical prediction {omega}{sub xx}(Q)=(2J)(1-5{var_epsilon}{sup 2}cos{sup 2}Qa+2{var_epsilon}{sup 2}){sup 1/2}, calculated by Ishimura and Shiba using perturbation theory.
