New nanowire structure absorbs light efficiently

Dual-type nanowire arrays can be used in applications such as LEDs and solar cells.

(Feb.25, 2015)  Researchers at Aalto University have developed a new method to implement different types of nanowires side-by-side into a single array on a single substrate. The new technique makes it possible to use different semiconductor materials for the different types of nanowires.
