From Donor-Acceptor Complexes to Gallium Nitride Nanorods
In this lecture we outline theoretical advances in modeling gas phase reactions leading to the formation of 13-15 binary
materials from donor-acceptor complexes.
Recent theoretical studies of the structures, stabilities, and reactivities of 13-15 donoracceptor complexes, amido and imido compounds, as well as large 13-15 clusters and nanotubes are highlighted.
Of particular interest here are the gallium nitride systems. Use of 13-15 compounds as single-source precursors to 13-15 alloys is discussed.
Also presented are directions for further theoretical and experimental studies in this area.
