Growth and characterisation of quantum materials nanostructures

Abstract:

The three key areas of this thesis are crystal synthesis strategies, growth mechanisms, and new types of quantum materials nanowires. The highlights are introduction of a new catalyst (TiO2) for nanowire growth and application to Bi2Se3, Bi2Te3, SnO2, and Ge nanowires; demonstration of step-flow growth, a new growth mechanism, for Bi2Te3 sub-micron belts; and the characterisation of the first quasi-one dimensional topological insulator (orthorhombic Sb-doped Bi2Se3) and topological Dirac s...
