Summary, in English

Semiconductor nanowires are grown using chemical beam epitaxy and metal organic vapor phase epitaxy from size-selected gold nanoparticles acting as catalysts. By changing materials during the growth it is possible to form heterostructures both along the length of the nanowires but also in a core-shell fashion. In particular, incorporation of pairs of InP tunnel barriers in InAs nanowires has been used to fabricate single-electron transistors and resonant tunneling diodes
