A nanowire is a nanostructure, with the diameter of the order of a nanometer. Alternatively, nanowires can be defined as structures that have a thickness or diameter constrained to tens of nanometers or less and an unconstrained length. At these scales, quantum mechanical effects are important.

Electrodeposition and Synthesis of Nickel Nanowires
14 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen Stillanous, Paul Longwell, Zulekia Torres, Ronald Redwing, Mary Shoemaker, NNCI Nano
This is a two part lesson for high school chemistry students. In part 1, the lab is designed to introduce students to the applications of forcing a chemical reaction using an electrical current. Students will discover how a flow of electrons allows cations in solution to revert to a solid state...
3 min Research Talk: Plasmonic Core-Multishell Nanowires for Optical Applications
26 Sep 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Raheem Carless
ED lights and technology are being used more often in today’s society. Compared to traditional illumination they are far more reliable and efficient, in the sense that they last longer, are environmentally friendly, and most importantly, they reduce energy waste.
Plasmonic Core-Multishell Nanowires for Optical Applications
01 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Raheem Carless, Amartya Dutta
LEDs are very useful in today’s society, especially when compared to conventional incandescent and fluorescent lamps. According to the US Department of Energy, by 2027 the use of LEDs could save 348 TWh of electricity, which is the equivalent...

Semiconducting Halide Perovskite Nanomaterials and Heterojunctions
10 May 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Letian Dou
Firstly, we present new synthetic methodology of halide perovskite nanowires with desired size, composition, and properties. Such synthetic approach includes colloidal, solution-phase, and vapor-phase growth. Sub-micrometer single crystal nanowires from solution-phase growth were demonstrated...
For now this page is a rather empty place holder for references on nanoHUB to the OMEN tool.
There is a more complete OMEN web page that is maintained by the Nanoelectronic Modeling Group of Prof....
Electron Transport in Schottky Barrier CNTFETs
24 Oct 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Igor Bejenari
A given review describes models based on Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation, which are used to obtain I-V characteristics for ballistic CNTFETs with Schottky-Barrier (SB) contacts. The SB is supposed to be an exponentially or linearly decaying function along the channel. The ...
Quantum Coherent Transport in Atoms & Electrons
21 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Yong P. Chen
I will discuss some recent experimental examples from my lab studying quantum coherent transport and interferometry in electrons as well as cold atoms. For example, phase coherent electron transport and interference around a cylinder realized in a nanowire of topological insulator...
