Aerotaxy - A Gas-Phase Nanowire Growth Technique

Heurlin, Magnus LU (2014)
Abstract
In this thesis an efficient nanowire fabrication technique, called Aerotaxy,

is investigated. Traditional nanowire fabrication techniques include

the use of a substrate as a point of nanowire nucleation which

limits the amount of nanowires that can be produced per unit time.

In contrary, Aerotaxy offers a continuous growth process, in the gasphase,

which could substantially increase the rate at which nanowires

are fabricated and thus lower their fabrication cost.

Investigations of nanowire properties such as size, shape and crystal

structure, with electron microscopy, show that growth can be controlled

and tuned to a high degree. Optical properties... (More)

Investigations of nanowire properties such as size, shape and crystal

structure, with electron microscopy, show that growth can be controlled

and tuned to a high degree. Optical properties investigated

with photoluminescence reveal that as-grown nanowires have good optical

properties and excellent spectral uniformity. Aerotaxy can thus

be used to produce high-quality nanowires, that could be integrated

into future opto-electronic devices, at a lower cost than other growth

techniques offer. (Less)
