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 investigate phase-coherent transport in InN nanowires of various diameters and lengths. The nanowires were grown by means of plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy. Information on the phase-coherent transport is gained by analyzing the characteristic fluctuation pattern in the magnetoconductance. For a magnetic field oriented parallel to the wire axis, we found that the correlation field mainly depends on the wire cross section, while the fluctuation amplitude is governed by the wire length. In contrast, if the magnetic field is perpendicularly oriented, for wires longer than approximately 200 nm, the correlation field is limited by the phase coherence length. Further insight into the orientation dependence of the correlation field is gained by measuring the conductance fluctuations at various tilt angles of the magnetic field. [less ▲]

We report on low-temperature magnetotransport measurements on InN nanowires, grown by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy. The characteristic fluctuation pattern observed in the conductance was employed to obtain information on phase-coherent transport. By analyzing the root mean square and the correlation field of the conductance fluctuations at various temperatures, the phase-coherence length was determined. [less ▲]
