ABSTRACT
Ohmic contacts to individual ZnTe nanowires were formed using Ni/Au multilayer electrodes. Measurements based on four terminals were carried out to test the current-voltage characteristics of contacts and nanowires. Specific contact resistivity of Ni/Au contacts is ∼5.2×10-2 Ω cm2 and the intrinsic resistivity of the ZnTe nanowire is ∼369.1 Ω cm. The photoconductivity behavior of individual ZnTe nanowires was observed, which was analyzed with theory of carrier generation, trapping, and recombination.

    The transport properties of single InN nanowires grown by thermal catalytic chemical vapor deposition were measured as a function of both length/square of radius ratio and temperature.

    The transport characteristics of 70-nm-diameter platinum nanowires (NWs), fabricated using a pore-templated electrodeposition process and individually contacted using a focused ion beam (FIB) method, are reported. This approach yields nanowire devices with low contact resistances (∼400...

    Ohmic contacts to GaAs/AlGaAs core/shell nanowires are prepared by using a Ni/AuGe/Ni/Au layer system. In contrast to Ohmic contacts to planar GaAs/AlGaAs layer systems here, relatively low alloying temperatures are used in cylindrical geometry. Lowest resistances are found for annealing...

    We studied electrical transport in single-crystalline boron nanobelts with α-tetragonal crystalline structure. We obtained ohmic contacts to the boron nanobelts by metal electrodes of Ni/Au bilayer. From the temperature dependence of electrical conductance, we found that the boron nanobelt is...

    We present a method of measurement of the current-voltage (I-V ) and conductance-voltage (G-V ) characteristics of nanowires with quantum point contact formed at the Co-Ge99.99Ga0.01 interface. The effect of the Fermi level pinning leads to the formation of an ohmic contact between Co and...

    The role of fluctuations in the potential due to randomly distributed dopants in the depletion layer of a metal-semiconductor junction is explored. To be specific, the case of n-GaAs is considered. Monte Carlo simulation techniques are used to calculate the potential in the junction. By using...

    We report preliminary electrical results on n+-InAs/n-GaAs contact structures grown by molecular beam epitaxy. The data indicate that the conduction-band discontinuity is sufficiently small to allow the formation of an ohmic contact to n-type GaAs for very heavily doped InAs layers. The...

    The intermetallic TiAl[SUB3] has been used as a thermally stable cap for Ti/Al ohmic contacts to n-GaN. The electrical performance of the TiAl[SUB3]-capped contact is nearly the same as that of a standard Ti/Al/Ni/Au contact processed on the same substrate, but the Ti/Al/TiAl[SUB3] contact's...

    In this report, ZnO single nanowire (NW)-based devices were fabricated on the same nanowire by e-beam lithography so that both sides had Ohmic contact and one side had Schottky contact. Information about the mechanism for low-power UV detection by these devices was unambiguously provided by I-V...
