Probing elastic properties of nanowire-based structures


We report the analysis of elastic properties of a composite medium consisting of GaN nanowires embedded into a dielectric matrix, which constitutes the active material of nanowire-based piezogenerators. A non-invasive technique, Transient Grating Method, is used to generate and analyze the propagation of acoustic waves in the frequency range from a few tens of MHz to several GHz. The wave propagation is simulated using the time-efficient computer model based on the explicit integral and asymptotic representations for laser-generated surface acoustic waves in layered anisotropic waveguides. Effective parameters of the multilayered model are obtained via the minimization of the discrepancy between the measured and calculated wave characteristics. A comparison with a reference composed of a dielectric matrix without nanowires shows that the mechanical behavior is strongly influenced by the presence of the nanostructures.
