GaN nanowires with diameters ranging between 50 and 500 nm were investigated by electrical and photoinduced current techniques to determine the influence of their size on the opto-electronic behavior of nanodevices. The conductivity, photoconductivity, and persistent photoconductivity behavior of GaN nanowires are observed to strongly depend on the wire diameter. In particular, by spectral photoconductivity measurements, three main sub-band-gap optoelectronic transitions were detected, ascribed to the localized states giving rise to the characteristic blue, green, and yellow bands of GaN. Photoconductivity with below-band-gap excitation varies orders of magnitude with the wire diameter, similarly to that observed for near-band-edge excitation. Moreover, yellow-band-related signal shows a superlinear behavior with respect to the band-edge signal, offering new information for the modeling of the carrier recombination mechanism along the nanowires. The photoconductivity results agree well with a model which takes into account a uniform distribution of the localized states inside the wire and their direct recombination with the electrons in the conduction band.

The influence of n-doping on the electrical transport properties of GaN nanowires is investigated by photoconductivity measurements on wires with different diameters. The electrical transport in nanowires is extremely sensitive to the wire diameter because of the size dependent barrier for surface recombination. This effect is used to determine the doping level of the nanowires and to complete and consolidate our previously developed surface recombination model for GaN nanowires. [less ▲]

We present acoustic charge transport in GaN nanowires (GaN NWs). The GaN NWs were grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) on silicon(111) substrates. The nanowires were removed from the silicon substrate, aligned using surface acoustic waves (SAWs) on the piezoelectric substrate LiNbO3 and finally contacted by electron beam lithography. Then, a SAW was used to create an acoustoelectric current in the GaN NWs which was detected as a function of radio-frequency (RF) wave frequency and its power. The presented method and our experimental findings open up a route towards new acoustic charge transport nanostructuredevices in a wide bandgap material such as GaN. [less ▲]

Morphology and optical properties of GaN nanowhiskers grown by molecular beam epitaxy(MBE) have been studied in correlation with growth parameters. It was shown that the growth parameters can be tuned such that uniform, well separated and high-quality nanowhiskers are obtained. Using an optimized ramp of Ga beam equivalent pressure (BEP) during the growth, the tapering or coalescence of nanowhiskers can be suppressed. By increasing the growth temperature the density of nanowhiskers is reduced, but the crystalline quality is improved as can be concluded from cathodoluminescence (CL) results. [less ▲]

GaN nanocolumns are reproducibly grown by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy on Si(111). The nanocolumn density and diameter, 20–150 nm, are controlled by means of the III/V ratio. The nanocolumns grow parallel to the [111] direction of the Si substrate. The columns have been transferred to a Si(100) substrate covered with a layer of 300nm SiO2; single nanowire devices have been fabricated using finger shaped electrical contacts (Ti/Au) obtained by e-beam patterning technique. The electrical transport properties of the resulting metal–semiconductor–metal nanostructures are analyzed by means of current– voltage measurements with and without UV-illumination. [less ▲]
