Project A6 combines the findings from the first funding period, which
investigated the transport properties of metallic nanowires as well as
inorganic nanoparticles as a function of microstructure and
microstructure with c-AFM and electron microscopy methods. The follow-up
project will address the electrical and optical properties of
nanoparticle-filled nanowire composites. The focus of the investigations
is on the microscopic understanding of the charge carrier transport
between the semiconducting matrix and the metallically conductive
nanowires. In situ X-ray spectroscopy under light (c-AFM and STM) should
provide insight into the electrical processes at the interfaces.
