Semiconductor nanowires exhibit outstanding potential as nano-building blocks for the next generation of electronic devices, ranging from solar cells to nanoscale lasers. A variety of innovative fabrication techniques can be employed to "grow" these nanowires with tight control over the nanowire geometry and crystallographic properties. Electrical characterisation of these tiny nanowires can be achieved with high accuracy and high throughput without requiring any electrical contacts, using a contact-free technique known as terahertz conductivity spectroscopy. This talk will discuss how the detailed nanowire growth studies together with terahertz conductivity spectroscopy are guiding the development of novel nanowire-based devices.
