Abstract

A near-field scanning optical microscope was used to image the photocurrent induced by local illumination along the length of a metal-semiconductor-metal (MSM) photodetector made from an individual CdS nanowire. Nanowire MSM photodetectors exhibited photocurrents ∼ 105 larger than the dark current (
