abstract
The study of the physical characteristics of nanowire devices has become increasingly important in recent years. In2O3 and ZnO nanowire devices have a broad spectrum of applications, such as in gas sensors, photodectors, and transistors, and can even be used to produce nanowire based solar cells. These solar cells allow for more efficient and radiation-resistant equipment, an observation which is of significant interest to NASA research. This research project allowed an undergraduate student to study these semiconducting nanowire devices in detail, as well as provided an opportunity for this student to become familiar with the lab equipment and new physical principles. The student formed electrical characterizations of the nanowire devices, and used the measurements taken to formulate the key parameters of the devices, such as the carrier concentrations and charge mobility. Both of these characteristics contribute to the overall functionality of the device, and can be studied to determine how best to construct equipment which would be able to use nanowire devices. The student also studied the noise parameters of the nanowire devices, which again contributes to the functionality of the device.
