Nanowire dopant know-how

By / April 15, 2009

According to a paper published in a recent issue of Nature Nanotechnology, two researchers at Northwestern University are using atom probe tomography to do precise atom-by-atom measurements of dopants in nanowires and, likewise, use the information to build new nanowire models and better predict their electronic properties. Lincoln Lauhon, assistant professor of materials science and…
