GaN and GaxIn1?xN Nanoparticles with Tunable Indium Content: Synthesis and Characterization

13 November 2015

Semiconducting GaN and GaxIn1?xN nanoparticles (4–10?nm in diameter, depending on the metal ratio) with tunable indium content are prepared through a chemical synthesis (the urea-glass route). The bandgap of the ternary system depends on its composition, and therefore, the color of the final material can be turned from bright ... [more]
