We report a novel negative photoconductivity (NPC) mechanism in n-type indium arsenide nanowires (NWs). Photoexcitation significantly suppresses the conductivity with a gain up to 10(5). The origin of NPC is attributed to the depletion of conduction channels by light assisted hot electron trapping, supported by gate voltage threshold shift and(More)
To date, spin generation in three-dimensional topological insulators is primarily modelled as a single-surface phenomenon, attributed to the momentum-spin locking on each individual surface. In this article, we propose a mechanism of spin generation where the role of the insulating yet topologically non-trivial bulk becomes explicit: an external electric(More)
We investigate solution-grown single-crystal methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) nanowires and nanoplates with spatially resolved photocurrent mapping. Sensitive perovskite photodetectors with Schottky contacts are fabricated by directly transferring the nanostructures on top of prepatterned gold electrodes. Scanning photocurrent microscopy (SPCM)(More)
We report the fabrication of strongly coupled nanohybrid superconducting junctions using PbS semiconductor nanowires and Pb0.5In0.5 superconducting electrodes. The maximum supercurrent in the junction reaches up to ∼15 μA at 0.3 K, which is the highest value ever observed in semiconductor-nanowire-based superconducting junctions. The observation of(More)
We report an optoelectronic investigation of lead sulfide nanowires (NWs) by scanning photocurrent microscopy. The photocurrent in p-type lead sulfide NW field effect transistors has demonstrated unusually nonlinear dependence on the intensity of local excitation. Surprisingly, the photocurrent polarity can be reversed under high illumination intensity on(More)

Light trapping in subwavelength semiconductor nanowires (NWs) offers a promising approach to simultaneously reducing material consumption and enhancing photovoltaic performance. Nevertheless, the absorption efficiency of a NW, defined by the ratio of optical absorption cross section to the NW diameter, lingers around 1 in existing NW photonic devices, and(More)
