Abstract

We report a post-growth approach to increase the radiative recombination efficiency of GaAs nanowires, beyond what has been achieved using surface passivation. This is done by coupling the nanowires to resonant plasmonic nanocavities to reduce the radiative recombination lifetime of minority carriers, thereby increasing the radiative efficiency by an order of magnitude.
