ABSTRACT
The temperature-dependent resistivity of highly disordered Pt/C-Ga composite nanowires is shown to be well described by the interference of electron-phonon scattering and elastic electron scattering from boundaries and defects. The strongly disordered nature of these wires, combined with a high value of their Debye temperature, are responsible for the pronounced nature of the interference effects in their resistivity.

    A very thin positively charged metallic filament separated from a surface of a semiconductor (S) by a thin nontunneling potential barrier (B) induces a quantum wire (QWr) in the semiconductor at the B/S interface. Single-electron quantum states of this QWr are controlled by a potential (and a...

    We report the observation of a root-like structure at the interface between GaAs nanowires and the (100) single-crystal GaAs substrate. These nanowires were grown via the vapor-liquid-solid mechanism using metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy. The root-like structure extends from the base of the...

    The structural and optical properties of the needle-like ZnO nanostructure grown on the carbon nanotubes (ZnO/CNTs) have been studied by scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and photoluminescence (PL) spectra. It can be seen that there is about tens of nanometers in...

    We have fabricated and studied a ballistic one-dimensional p-type quantum wire using an undoped AlGaAs/GaAs structure.
