A majority of modern day applications, ranging from telecommunications, charge storage memories and solar cells to more recently silicon photonics, have at their core compound semiconductor based optoelectronic devices. Particular attention has focused on the use of Group-III and Group-V elements in these devices and thus drives a desire for improved understanding. This thesis therefore studies a variety of novel III-V nanostructures, which have shown immense promise for inclusion in next-generation photonic devices, examining in detail these structures in terms of their optical properties and inherent carrier dynamics.
