“EAGER Self-Catalyzed Growth of Patterned GaAsSb and GaAsSbN Nanowires for Op...

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Undergraduate, Graduate

Nanowires exhibit one-dimensional architecture. The small dimensions provide flexibility in manipulating the properties of the materials. The growth of nanowires has an agricultural analogy. The growth of nanowires requires a well-prepared substrate (soil) and seed to grow. Heating of the substrate provides the thermal energy (sun) needed to make the atoms mobile. The atomic beam of the elements (water) constituting the nanowires have then impinged on the substrate in ultra-high vacuum (the vacuum in outer space) enabling the growth of the nanowire.  These are the building blocks of photonic circuits.

The National Science Foundation uses the Early-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) funding mechanism to support exploratory work in its early stages on untested, but potentially transformative, research ideas or approaches. This EAGER project was awarded as a result of the invitation in the Dear Colleague Letter NSF 16-080 to proposers from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to submit proposals that would strengthen research capacity of faculty at the institution.
