We consider tubular nanowires with polygonal cross-section, whose geometry has important implications for the electron localization and separates the lowest energy groups into two sets of corner and side-localized states. The presence of an external magnetic field transversal to the nanowires imposes an additional localization mechanism, the electrons being pushed to the sides relative to the direction of the field. This has important implications on the current density, as it creates current…

Effects of carrier storage in an uncapped Ge–Si core–shell nanocrystal on simulated nano-electron beam induced current

Carrier trapping process inside an uncapped and spherical Ge–Si core–shell nanocrystal on the surface of an n-doped Si substrate and its effects on electron beam induced current are studied using a

The xishacorene natural products are structurally unique apolar diterpenoids that feature a bicyclo[3.3.1] framework. These secondary metabolites likely arise from the well-studied, structurally

Majorana zero modes in nanowires with combined triangular and hexagonal geometry

The effects of geometry on the hosting of Majorana zero modes are explored in core-shell nanowires with a hexagonal core and a triangular shell, and it is suggested that a dual core nanowire is needed to allow for braiding operation of Majoranas zero modes at the nanowired end plane.

Anisotropic light scattering by prismatic semiconductor nanowires.

The results indicate the possibility of a flexible in-situ tunability of the directivity simply by rotating the nanowire profile relatively to the direction of the incident light which could offer potential advantages in applications such as switching or sensing.

Corner and side localization of electrons in irregular hexagonal semiconductor shells

We discuss the low energy electronic states in hexagonal rings. These states correspond to the transverse modes in core–shell nanowires built of III–V semiconductors which typically have a hexagonal

Widely tunable GaAs bandgap via strain engineering in core/shell nanowires with large lattice mismatch

An engineering strategy to surmount strain-induced difficulties in the growth achieving highly strained cores with a sizeable change in their band gap is reported, rendering gallium arsenide nanowires suitable for photonic devices across the near-infrared range.

Breakdown of Corner States and Carrier Localization by Monolayer Fluctuations in Radial Nanowire Quantum Wells.

Experimental findings are corroborated by theoretical modeling, which unambiguously show that electrons and holes localize on facets where the quantum well is the thickest and that even minute deviations of the perfect hexagonal shape strongly perturb the commonly assumed 6-fold symmetric ground state.
