Notes

Abstract: Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing field, with nanowires during the advancement of our modern electronics. Aluminum nitride (AlN) wires stand out from other group III-V semiconductors due to their large piezoelectric coefficient and high thermal conductivity. Due to the nature of aluminum (Al), growth of these wires has proven problematic, and optimizing their different characteristics even more so. I intend to grow AlN wires at a lower temperature than other researchers have in order to prevent some of the defects from forming. I will also be growing on sapphire, a substrate better suited to the well arrayed growth of the wires than silicon (Si).
