Title Assembly and Integration of Semiconductor Nanowires for Functional Nanosystems: from Nanoelectronics to Nanobiotechnology
Adviser Prof. Charles M. Lieber
Central to the bottom-up concept that could lead to entirely new and highly integrated functional nanosystems is the development of effective assembly methods that enable hierarchical organization of nanoscale building blocks over large areas. The theme of this thesis is to develop general assembly approaches for organizing semiconductor nanowire (NW) building blocks into designed architectures and to further integrate ordered structures to construct functional device arrays. Firstly, several strategies including blown bubble film (BBF) technique and selective chemical interactions driven assembly have been developed to organize NWs into hierarchically ordered structures. Furthermore, these assembled NW structures have been used to build integrated .....[full text; pdf file - 669 KB]
