Paper Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate that p-type InN nanowires can be realized by direct magnesium (Mg) doping. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy experiments on the sidewalls of Mg-doped InN nanowires indicate no surface electron accumulation with the background electron concentration below 1×1016 cm-3. The presence of Mg-acceptors is clearly observed by the low-temperature photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, which shows a band-to-band recombination PL peak and a Mg-acceptor energy level related PL peak. The peak energy separation is about 60 meV, which is consistent with the Mg activation energy in InN. Single nanowire field-effect transistors are further fabricated and investigated, which clearly exhibits a p-type transistor behavior, representing the first direct evidence for p-type conduction in any InN structures. The potential device applications based on InN nanowires are also discussed.
