Abstract

Porous Vycor glass has been impregnated with semiconductors by pressure forcing the nonwetting semiconductor melt into the interconnected pores. Dense semiconductor mesh-like microstructures with a characteristic size of 50 Å can be fabricated by this technique. Measurements are reported which show the composites are suitable for both optical and transport studies, particularly those addressing quantum confinement of carriers and unusual electrical transport phenomena in this new class of materials.
