Optimized atomic geometry of the InAs NWs aligned along the (a)  direction of zinc blende structure, (b) , and (c) directions of wurtzite structure. The bigger (gray) balls represent the In atoms, the medium (orange) balls represent the As atoms, and the smaller ones represent the H atoms.
Band structure of the InAs NWs aligned along the  direction of zinc blende phase with diameters of (a) 1.32, nm (b) 1.82 nm, and (c) 2.32 nm;  wurtzite with diameters of (d) 0.83 nm, (e) 1.62 nm, and (f) 2.46 nm; and wurtzite with diameters of (g) 1.54 nm, (h) 2.33 nm, and (i) 3.12 nm.
Difference between the level at the VBM and the level just below in energy, as a function of the InAs NW diameters for the  zinc blende,  and wurtzite phases.
Electron (top) and hole (bottom) effective masses for the three phases of the InAs NWs as a function of the diameter. The dashed horizontal lines indicate the respective experimental bulk effective masses (Ref. 24).
Hole (top) and electron (bottom) mobilities for the three phases of InAs NWs as a function of the diameter. The reference bulk electron and hole mobilities have been taken as that of low temperature and , respectively.
