Abstract

Wide band gap II-VI semiconductor nanostructures have been extensively studied according to their great potentials for optoelectronic applications, while heterojunctions are fundamental elements for modern electronic and optoelectronic devices. Subsequently, a great deal of achievements in construction and optoelectronic applications of heterojunctions based on II-VI compound semiconductor one-dimensional nanostructures have been obtained in the past decade. Herein, we present a review of a series of progress in this field. First, construction strategies towards different types of heterojunctions are reviewed, including core-shell heterojunctions, one-dimensional axial heterojunctions, crossed nanowires heterojunctions, and one-dimensional nanostructure/thin film or Si substrate heterojunctions. Secondly, optoelectronic applications of these constructed heterojunctions, such as photodetectors, solar cells, light emitting diodes, junction field effect transistors, etc., are discussed briefly. This review shows that heterojunctions based on II-VI compound semiconductor 1-D nanostructures have great potential for future optoelectronic applications. View Full-Text
