The scientific field of (compound) semiconductor nanowires got started seriously in the US and in Europe about 15 years ago, some ten years after the original break-through research conducted by Dr. Kenji Hiruma and his team at Hitachi in Japan.

Our own early work was initially very much exploratory research, testing to what extent we could understand, control and have fun with the ways in...   More >
