Hybrid Metal-Semiconductor nanoMaterials

The colloidal synthetic conditions to grow Indium Nitride (InN) nanotubes via the thermal co-decomposition of different indium and nitrogen precursors have been investigated to produce core shell structures consisting of a metal indium core surrounded by a polycrystalline InN shell.

Transition of the InN nanostructures from nanoparticles to nanotubes could be achieved by carefully tuning the reaction conditions. XRD and TEM have been extensively used to both gain insight and understand the colloidal syntheses of InN nanostructures synthesized via a Solution-Liquid-Solid growth mechanism. This is a promising strategy to better control the fabrication of hollow- as well as hetero-nanostructures.
