We bury vertical free-standing core-shell GaAs/AlGaAs nanowires by a planar GaAs overgrowth. As the nanowires get buried, their crystalline structure progressively transforms: whereas the upper emerging part retains its initial wurtzite structure, the buried part adopts the zinc blende structure of the burying layer. The burying process also suppresses all(More)
Current-voltage and Kelvin probe force microscopy (KPFM) measurements were performed on single ZnO nanowires. Measurements are shown to be strongly correlated with the contact behavior, either Ohmic or diode-like. The ZnO nanowires were obtained by metallo-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) and contacted using electronic-beam lithography. Depending(More)
We report on the efficient room-temperature photoluminescence (PL) quenching of ZnO in the presence of 2,4-dinitrotoluene (DNT) vapor and for concentration as low as 180 ppb. Compared to ZnO thin films, ZnO nanowires exhibit a strong (95%) and fast (41 s) quenching of the PL intensity in the presence of DNT vapor. Assuming that the PL quenching is due to a(More)
Whereas nanowire (NW)-based devices offer numerous advantages compared to bulk ones, their performances are frequently limited by an incomplete understanding of their properties where surface effect should be carefully considered. Here, we demonstrate the ability to spatially map the electric field and determine the exciton diffusion length in NW by using(More)
The characterization of nanowires (NWs) often requires the use of scanning electron beam techniques because of their high spatial resolution. However, the impact of the high energetic electron beam on the physical parameters under investigation is rarely taken into account. In this work, a combination of optical and electrical techniques is involved for the(More)
Quantitative characterization of electrically active dopants and surface charges in nano-objects is challenging, since most characterization techniques using electrons, ions or field ionization effects study the chemical presence of dopants, which are not necessarily electrically active. We perform cathodoluminescence and voltage contrast experiments on a(More)
Thin films of GaN were grown on template substrates of 4-mm-thick GaN layers on sapphire substrates by low-pressure metal organic vapour-phase epitaxy (LP-MOVPE) in a new-design reactor with the shape T. Wide range of growth temperature from 520 to 1100 1C was explored. At low temperature growth between 550 and 690 1C, dimethylhydrazine (DMHy) was used as(More)
