Heterostructures in semiconducting nanowires: nanometric light emitters studied by scanning tunnelling microscopy

Abstract

This project aims to nucleate a research group on optical properties of individual light emitters studied with high spatial and spectral resolution by Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy (STM) in association with a high performance optical system. In this system, local luminescence signals generated by the STM tunnelling current will be employed to study semiconductor nanostructures with sub-nanometer spatial resolution. The objectives of this proposal are the development of a unique instrumental setup in the state-of-the-art and explore its potential in the study of InP, In(Ga)P and GaP heterostructures formed within nanowires, including polymorphism. Nanowires in the III-V group, of great technological interest, has recently revealed new properties and nanometric optical studies, in correlation with Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), will unleash faster advances in this knowledge frontier. Effects of phase changes, interfaces, composition gradients and junctions in such heterostructures will be correlated to the nanowires' local and global optical properties. Thus, this project will contribute to the understanding of optical properties of these new materials. This project will also explore, at a later time, other systems of interest, like C-Dots or bidimensional semiconductors (MoS2, BN, among others). (AU)
