Applied Physics Seminar
Abstract: Semiconductor Nanowires are considered as building blocks for next generation electronics and photonics. In this talk, I will discuss about growth of Semiconductor Nanowires using Vapor-Lqiuid-Solid (VLS) and Selective Area Epitaxy (SAE) methods and discuss about materials issues related to nanowires. I will present results on GaAs nanowire lasers, multi-quantum well nanowire lasers, zinc doped GaAs and InP nanowire lasers and nanopositioning of these lasers for flexible electronics applications. I will also discuss about use of these nanowires for THz detectors, Solar Cells and Neuroscience Applications.
