Abstract

original image

Nanowire photonic metamaterials are grown with controlled diameters, alignment and volume densities using MOVPE by Otto Muskens and co-workers. In this report on p. 1039 it is shown that these nanowire metamaterials possess unique optical properties that hold promise for applications ranging from optical sensing to photovoltaics.
