Our recent work on single-nanowire terahertz detectors has been published in a special issue of the Lithuanian Journal of Physics, celebrating the 70th birthday of Prof. Arunas Krotkus. In this work, Dr Kun Peng used single-nanowire terahertz detectors with different capping to understand the relative contribution of the core and
Kun Peng has written a paper accepted in IOP Nanotechnology (http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1361-6528/aa5d80). The work, building on previous progress in single nanowire terahertz detectors, uses a combination of an axial doping profile and novel optical characterisation to improve the contact quality for these devices.
Congratulations to Kun Peng, who submitted her PhD thesis today at the Australian National University. Her thesis, entitled “III-V Compound Semiconductor Nanowire Terahertz Detectors” has been completed under the supervision of Prof. Jagadish, Prof. Tan and Prof. Fu at the ANU and Patrick at the University of Manchester. Well done
Patrick has given an invited talk at MRS Fall 2016 in Boston, on the topic of “Nanowire Photoconductive Detectors for Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy”. The research is based on the work of group member Kun Peng, and specifically covered the characterisation and development of single nanowire terahertz photoconductive detectors.
Kun’s paper “Broad Band Phase Sensitive Single InP Nanowire Photoconductive Terahertz Detectors” has been accepted for publication in Nano Letters. In the work, Kun has fabricated a single nanowire terahertz detector using an InP nanowire, and compared different antenna structures with traditional “bulk” InP detectors. We have shown the
