Effects of Strain in Low-Dimensional Semiconductor Structures
Strain state in low-dimensional semiconductor structures has a significant influence on their optical and electrical properties, and strain technology is widely utilized to tailor the physical properties of semiconductor materials and devices, such as to engineer the band gap and the carrier mobility of semiconductor heterostructures. The paper reviews the effect of strain on semiconductor quantum wells (QWs), nanowires, and quantum dots (QDs). The recent researches on the strain distribution and engineering of the physical properties by strain in (In,Ga)As, (In,Ga)P, III–V nitrogen, ZnO and SiGe semiconductor QWs, nanowires and QDs are overviewed.
