In this work we present new results on the morphological and microstructural properties of GaAs-AlxGa1-xAs (x≈0.24) core-shell nanowires (NWs) epitaxially grown on (111)B-GaAs substrates by Au-catalyst assisted metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE). Optimized growth conditions allowed us to fabricate highly-dense arrays of vertically-aligned (i.e., along the <111> crystallographic orientation) NWs. The NW arrays were investigated by Helium Ion microscopy (HeIM) and X-ray double- and triple-axis measurements and reciprocal space mapping (RSM). We demonstrate that these techniques can be employed in order to correlate some intrinsically local morphological information with statistically relevant (i.e. averaged over millions-to-billions of NWs) data on the NW structural properties.
We report on the photoluminescence (PL) of GaAs-Al0.32Ga0.68As core-shell nanowires grown by MOVPE, and their dependence on the precursors V:III molar ratio utilised in the vapor during growth. It is shown that the PL emission of the GaAs nanowire core red-shifts with decreasing the V:III ratio from 30:1 to 4:1, an effect tentatively ascribed to the build-up of a space-charge region at the core-shell hetero-interface, the latter associated to the unintentional incorporation of impurities, namely C in GaAs and Si in AlGaAs.
