As the miniaturization and integration of solid-state electronic devices has continued to increase rapidly with the demands of high speed, low power consumption and high storage density, the conventional Si-based technology has lost their advantages on fabrication process. Therefore the technologies based on new materials gradually attract researchers’ attention. Among them, Indium Arsenide (InAs) nanowires (NWs) with high electron mobility is one of the most promising candidate. In this chapter, we introduce the advantages of InAs nanowire on electronic devices and the development status of InAs nanowire electronic devices. Also, the topic ideas and chapter arrangements of this thesis are presented.
