Speech title: Semiconductor Nanowires for Optoelectronics Applications
Abstract: Semiconductor Nanowires are considered as building blocks for the next generation electronics and photonics. In this talk, I will review our recent results semiconductor nanowires and nanomembranes for discuss about their optical and electronic properties. I will discuss control of crystal phases and associated changes in optical properties. I will present results on nanowire lasers, nanowire THz photodetectors and polarizers, use of nanowires for energy and neuroscience applications. I will also discuss about the future prospects of nanowires.
