Thermodynamic Disorder in GaN-based Nanowires

Compound Semiconductor and Nanowerk features "KAUST Team Reveals Thermodynamic Disorder In GaN-Based Nanowires"

"New study shows the thermodynamic entropy behaviour of InGaN/GaN nanowires."

"GaN-based p-i-n power devices based on nanowires are suitable for attenuators, high-frequency switches, as well as photodetector applications. However, non-radiative recombination affects their performance."

"Led by Xiaohang Li, Iman S. Roqan, and Boon S. Ooi, the team studied the photoinduced entropy of InGaN/GaN p-i-n double-heterostructure nanowires using temperature-dependent photoluminescence."

"They hypothesised that the amount of generated randomness in the InGaN layers in the nanowires eventually increases as the temperature approaches room temperature."
