Broader Impacts: non-planar group III-V heterostructures, particularly core-shell nanowires, exhibit a number of comparative advantages for optoelectronic applications with respect to conventional planar heterostructures. By providing completely new insights into three-dimensional structure and dopant distribution in these materials, the proposed work has the potential to significantly accelerate the development of new technologies while training students in this critical area. The proposed â€œco-op on campusâ€ program, in which senior research projects are solicited from industrial partners, will be a mechanism by which an industrial perspective on technology can inform the practice of fundamental materials research beginning of the undergraduate level. The considerable involvement of the P.I. in education and outreach activities at the secondary education level will contribute further broader impacts.
