The authors report the fabrication of a p-field effect transistor (FET) and an n-FET with a silicon nanowire channel and doped silicon source and drain regions. The silicon nanowires were synthesized by the vapor-liquid-solid method. For p-FETs the source and drain regions were formed by adding boron doped silicon to the unintentionally doped nanowire body at predefined locations using in situ doped silicon epitaxy. For n-FETs the epitaxial source and drain regions were grown undoped and were later implanted with P and As. The measured Id-Vg characteristics of the devices exhibited unipolar transport, while reference FETs made with nanowires from the same batch but with Schottky (metal) contacts exhibited ambipolar characteristics.
