We report on simple techniques for extracting the electrical properties of 1-dimensional semiconductor nanowires using standard ultraviolet (UV) photo-lithography instead of e-beam lithography (EBL), which is a commonly used technique for the fabrication of nanoscale electrical devices. For electrical transport measurement the gallium nitride nanowires (GaN NWs) were prepared by a horizontal hot-wall chemical vapor deposition (CVD) with metallic Ga and NH3 gas for Ga and N sources, and GaN nanowire field effect transistor (FET) structures on a 8×8 mm2 silicon wafer were fabricated by ordinary 2-mask photo-lithography processes. The estimated carrier mobility from the gate-modulation characteristics is on the order of 60 ∼ 70 cm2/V⋅s. We found that our approach is a powerful and simple technique to extract the electrical properties of semiconductor nanowires. The material characteristics of GaN nanowires are also discussed.
