The unintentionally doped zinc oxide nanowires are intrinsically n-type and complementary doping is essential for functional device applications. The latest breakthrough in the p-type doping in Wang’s research group makes ZnO light -emitting diodes and injection lasers. This project will focus on the development and commercialization of ZnO nanowire-based LED to focus the high carrier injection efficiency and consequently LED efficiency, improved light extraction efficiency and promising low-cost production. Potential of this technology are light-emitting diodes, solid-state lighting, displays, Backlight for LED displays and other applications..

In preliminary tests the team has will receive one of the highest figures of merit ever for a thermoelectric material in Si / SiGe structures and now wants for practical use for practical application.
