Abstract

Nanoparticles of GaAs and InP have been prepared by aerosol techniques and characterized by electron microscopy methods. Through variation of the reaction temperature, it has been possible to follow how the reaction proceeds when the group-III aerosol reacts with the group-V precursor to form III-V semiconductor nanoparticles. The reaction can be followed both by the measurement of the change in particle size and the determination of the increase in the group-V element content in the particles.
