In this project we aim to obtaining multisegment nanowires with an architecture consisting of metal I-(metal II oxide)-metal I (MOM), starting from nanowires of type metal I-metal II-metal I, by combining electrodeposition in a template with a selective oxidation process using electrochemical, thermal or plasma techniques. Finally, we will aim to modulate the electrical properties of MOM nanowires by the preparation process parameters and identify the possible applications. The transport characteristics of the devices based on MOM nanowires will be influenced by the electrodeposition process’ parameters but also by the oxidation process parameters. Moreover, by conveniently tailoring the processes the amount of point defects will be controlled, this being an essential parameter in the transport properties. Another one is the quality of the contact.  It is expected that by using nanowires of this structure type to enhance the functionality and performance of the devices.
