Gas phase surface functionalization of group IV nanostructures
The advent of group IV nanostructures has generated a large interest in the use of these structures to improve the performance in next generation electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photovoltaics, light emitting diodes, lasers, sensors (biological and chemical), and transistors. Nanostructures composed of group IV semiconductors are attractive for use in these applications as they are abundant and nontoxic. The use of these nanostructures in these applications is motivated by the numerous reports of novel optoelectronic phenomena that are sensitive to both the nanostructure size and ...
