Chemically synthesizednanowires, in particular, offers a unique toolbox not only for highlycompact and integrated photonic modules and devices, including coherentand incoherent light sources, waveguides, photodetectors andphotovoltaics, but also for new types of nanoscopic bio-probes for spotcargo delivery and in-situ single cell endoscopy and sensing.

Nanowire photodetectors have been attracting increased attention due totheir potential for very high sensitivity detection stemming from theunique properties of these quasi-one dimensional structures.
This work focuses on utilizing silicon nanowires towardscreating a very high responsivity detector sensitive to a wide range ofwavelengths from the ultraviolet to the near infrared spectrum.

Itwas demonstrated that nanowire-based optical probe can deliver payloadsinto the cell with a high spatiotemporal precision, guide and confinevisible light into intracellular compartments selectively and detectoptical signals from the subcellular regions with high spatialresolution.

The effective optical coupling between the fiber opticsand the nanowire enables highly localized excitation and detection,limiting the probe volume to the close proximity of the nanowire.
