Abstract

The IIテ「ツツ天 group semiconductors, with narrow band gaps, are important materials with many applications in infrared detectors, lasers, solar cells, ultrasonic multipliers, and Hall generators. Since the first report on trumpet-like Zn3P2 nanowires, one-dimensional (1-D) nanostructures of IIテ「ツツ天 group semiconductors have attracted great research attention recently because these special 1-D nanostructures may find applications in fabricating new electronic and optoelectronic nanoscale devices. This article covers the 1-D IIテ「ツツ天 semiconducting nanostructures that have been synthesized till now, focusing on nanotubes, nanowires, nanobelts, and special nanostructures like heterostructured nanowires. Novel electronic and optoelectronic devices built on 1-D IIテ「ツツ天 semiconducting nanostructures will also be discussed, which include metalテ「ツツ妬nsulator-semiconductor field-effect transistors, metal-semiconductor field-effect transistors, and pテ「ツツ渡 heterojunction photodiode. We intent to provide the readers a brief account of these exciting research activities.
