The research is ongoing here to analyze III-V nanowires (InSb, InAs, etc.) from a materials, physics, and electrical engineering perspective.
We want to
provide the community with a broad and deep analysis of these materials in
I work with a great team of physicists, chemists, material engineers, electrical engineers and more who collaborate to accomplish this task.
Keywords: InSb Nanowire Field-Effect Transistor, InAs, Quantum capacitance limit, 1-D transport, room temperature, ballistic transport, single sub-band, III-V nanowire growth, passivation, top down, nanoscale device research.

There are two things in theory: concept and mathematics. It is difficult to focus on both at the same time and learn anything. The brain doesn’t work that way. I hope you explore my take on these subjects from a conceptual point of view. From there, the math is the only hurdle. I do not show derivations… be careful. I link to the derivations and hope you can derive them. HOWEVER, I highly encourage that before you do any derivations, you consider the concept, think a lot about it, and ask questions outside the box. A top-down person will see things more clearly than a bottom-up person.

‘Fuzzy ball’ of nanowires from growth substrate!
I have been extremely fortunate to have travelled to 20+ countries including throughout the US. Here are some of the pictures posted and more will be added. Thank you for taking a looking and letting me know what you think!
