 Transport and Scanned Probe Investigations of One-Dimensional Nanostructures

Hongkun Park

(Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Harvard University)

Abstract:  I will present transport and scanned probe investigations of single-walled carbon nanotubes and ferroelectric nanowires in this talk.  In the first major part of the talk, I will discuss coupled scanned probe and transport measurements on individual single-walled carbon nanotubes, which allowed us to investigate (1) Fabry-Perot interference between electron waves traveling along the nanotube, (2) electronic shell filling and exchange coupling in metallic nanotubes, and (3) resonant electron scattering from individual structural defects.  In the second part of the talk, I will discuss the synthesis and characterization of ferroelectric nanowires.
