A semiconductor/environment interface has been formed in which suspended silicon nanowires (SiNWs) are in direct contact with photoactive TiO2 quantum dots. The photoactivity of TiO2 competes with the intrinsic photoresponses of p-type silicon nanowires. Rational control of the competitive mechanism realizes remarkable mirror-imaging photo-switching and superior rectifying effects in a single SiNW-based device.
