III-V compound semiconductor nanowires have drawn much attention as nanoscale building blocks for optoelectronic/photonic integration owing to their nanoscale size, excellent optical and electrical properties, and strain relaxation ability for lattice-mismatched systems enabling epitaxial growth of a wide range of high-quality materials and structures. In particular, highly uniform, ordered, vertical nanowire arrays exhibit strong geometry-related light-matter interaction properties, offering unique flexibility for the design of a variety of geometry-tunable high-performance and multifunctional light emission and detection devices.

In this webinar hosted by the Optics for Energy Technical Group, Prof. Lan Fu will present recent work on the design, growth and fabrication of III-V semiconductor nanowire array-based materials (such as InP), structures (such as InGaAs/InP quantum wells) and devices (including LEDs, photodetector, and self-powered photovoltaic gas sensors), for the development of next-generation highly integrated photonic/optoelectronic systems and IoTs for low power applications.
