  1. 1. Transport Studies of Local-Gate Defined Quantum Dots in Nanowires

    University dissertation from Solid State Physics

    Author : Carina Fasth; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Semiconductory physics; Fysik; Physics; quantum devices; nanowire; quantum dot; Halvledarfysik;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on electrical transport in semiconductor InAs nanowires grown by chemical beam epitaxy. Initially, transport length scales of homogeneous InAs n-type nanowires are characterized by low-temperature magnetoconductance measurements. The measurements show phase-coherent conductivity corrections. READ MORE

    Abstract : Surfaces and interfaces have a special significance to nanotechnology because the surface/volume ratio of nanomaterials is larger than for bulk materials. Therefore, interfaces of nanomaterials are usually more important to the properties of nanomaterials than for larger scale materials. READ MORE
