Why piezoelectric semiconductor nanowires are interesting for the PULSE-COM project?

Piezoelectric semiconducting nanowires have attracted a lot of attention recently because of their intrinsic enhanced properties compared to bulk materials. For instance, they are more sensible to small forces [1], they show reduced dielectric properties [2] and higher piezoelectric properties [3]. All this combined could potentially increase their efficiency as transducers [4]. Simulations show that…
