Terahertz Testing FixturePublic

Nanowires are currently being developed for use in next-generation solar cells. In order to produce and improve these solar cells, improved nanowire synthesis methods and non-contact measurement techniques are needed. The goal of this project was to design, build, and test a fixture for measuring both axial and radial conductivity of nanowires by terahertz spectroscopy. In order to measure conductivity along both directions, an adjustable rotating fixture for holding nanowire samples was designed and manufactured. The samples prepared for testing consisted of aligned and unaligned zinc oxide nanowires grown on both quartz and silicon substrates.
