We visualize atomic level dynamics during Si nanowire growth using aberration corrected environmental transmission electron microscopy, and compare with lower pressure results from ultra-high vacuum microscopy. We discuss the importance of higher pressure observations for understanding growth mechanisms and describe protocols to minimize effects of the higher pressure background gas.
















The work has been published in ChemComm"Nanowire growth kinetics in aberration corrected environmental transmission electron microscopy".

We demonstrate the concept by epitaxially incorporating metal silicide nanocrystals into Si nanowires with defect-free interfaces, and discuss how this process can be generalized to create complex nanowire-based heterostructures.








The work "Synthesis of nanostructures in nanowires using sequential catalyst reactions" has been published in Nature Materials.







We report the effect of strain fluctuation on epitaxial growth of silicide in a Si nanowire via point contact and atomic layer reactions, and we discuss the thermodynamic, kinetic, and mechanical implications during the kinetic process of phase transformation.








The work "Effect of elastic strain fluctuation on atomic layer growth of epitaxial silicide in Si nanowires by point contact reactions" has been published in Nano Letters.

We measured the local kinetics in situ as each atomic plane was added at the catalyst-nanowire growth interface by VLS rocess. During growth of GaP nanowires at typical V/III ratios, we found surprising fluctuations in growth rate, even under steady growth conditions. We correlated these fluctuations with the formation of twin defects in the nanowire, and found that these variations can be suppressed by switching to growth conditions with a low V/III ratio. A growth model has been reported here.













The work "Atomic-Scale Variability and Control of III-V Nanowire Growth Kinetics" has been published in Science.



We have openings for highly motivated members to work with us!

We have PhD student positions for analytical TEM/STEM. 


Our research interests include


1. phase transformation and growth of low-dimensional semiconductor nanomaterials including Si, Ge based nanostructures, III-V materials, nitrides,  silicides/germanides.


2. in situ and high performance transmission electron microscopy including the studies of silicide/germanide formation in nanostructures, kinetics of phase transformation in nanomaterials/nanoheterostructures, and vapor phase reactions.
