Authors: J.S. Hammond, U. Givan, D. Paul, F. Patolsky

Affilation: Physical Electronics USA, United States

Pages: 21 - 24

Keywords: nanowire, SiGe, Auger electron spectroscopy

The lateral and depth distributions of the surface oxidation and the surface Phosphorous doping concentrations have been measured from an individual SixGe(1-x) 60 nm diameter nanowire with Auger Electron Spectroscopy combined with sputter ion depth profiling. The surface imaging spectroscopy characterization of the CVD-LVS grown nanowires interpret the conductivity measurements of the nanowires.
