Professor Holmes appears in Sunday Times and Silicon Republic

Prof. Holmes appears in Sunday Times and Silicon Republic to discuss recent group work published in Nature Communications on germanium-tin nanowire structures and their potential impact on power consumption and battery efficiency for future electronic devices.

Articles available at the Sunday Times (subscription required) and on Silicon Republic.

The work led by Prof. Holmes involves the bottom up-growth of GeSn nanowires. Sn-based group IV alloys are predicted to to be tunable direct band-gap semiconductor materials in addition to exhibiting high electron and hole mobilities.  This makes such materials ideal platforms for co-integration of optoelectronic and high-speed electronic devices.
