  1. 6. Semiconductor Nanowires: Epitaxy and Applications

    Author : Thomas Mårtensson; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; semiconductor; nanotechnology; nanowires; crystal growth; metal-organic vapour phase epitaxy; III-V; silicon; MOVPE; light-emitting diode; single-electron transistor; cell;

    Abstract : Semiconductor nanowires are nanoscale objects formed by bottom-up synthesis. In recent years their unique properties have been exploited in fields such as electronics, photonics, sensors and the life sciences. In this work, the epitaxial growth of nanowires and their applications were studied. READ MORE

  2. 7. Selective Epitaxy of Indium Phosphide and Heteroepitaxy of Indium Phosphide on Silicon for Monolithic Integration

    Author : Fredrik Olsson; Sebastian Lourdudoss; Shigeya Naritsuka; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Semiconductor Physics; Semiconductor physics; Halvledarfysik;

    Abstract : A densely and monolithically integrated photonic chip on indium phosphide is greatly in need for data transmission but the present day’s level of integration in InP is very low. Silicon enjoys a unique position among all the semiconductors in its level of integration. READ MORE

  3. 8. Quantum transport and spin effects in lateral semiconductor nanostructures and graphene
