Part of Focus Issue on “Semiconductor Nanowires” (Eds.: Chennupati Jagadish, Lutz Geelhaar, Silvija Gradecak)

Based on their inherent small diameter, silicon nanowires offer unique properties that enable electron devices, sensors as well as solar cells and lithium batteries with the potential to significantly outperform their thin film or bulk counterparts. This article gives an overview of important device applications of silicon nanowires. Starting with nanowire fabrication, the different device concepts are introduced and their most important features reviewed. Special focus is put on different reconfigurable transistor concepts recently described in literature.
