Bias affects nanowire photodetector studies

In a February 2017 paper in Nanotechnology NanoLund researchers reports the results of simulations and experiments investigating the effect of the nanowire doping profile on photodetection characteristics in InP nanowire array photodetectors, emphasizing the role of bias dependence.

The study was done by V Jain, M Heurlin, M Karimi, L Hussain, M Aghaeipour, A Nowzari, A Berg, G Nylund, F Capasso, L Samuelson, MT Borgström and H Pettersson.
