Nanofiber refers to fibers that have diameter less than 1000nm. These nanofibers possess distinct mechanical, electrical, and physical characteristics, which enables them to serve different applications in various domains including medical, electronics, chemicals, and textiles. Nanofibers in the electronics domain involve semiconductors which are converted into nanofiber form having diameter of about 60nm, which are termed as semiconductor nanofiber. The thickness of a semiconductor nanofiber is nearly 1000 times thinner than human hair. To fully harness the working capability of a semiconductor nanofiber, the working culture utilizes the composite semiconductor nanofiber, which involves embedding other elements in the semiconductor nanofiber.
Semiconductor nanofiber is extensively utilized in photonic devices such as photocatalyst and solar cells. The usage of semiconductor nanofiber results in the significant rise in efficiency of solar cells. In case of photocatalyst which is used in air-purifying devices, the semiconductor nanofiber used in the device increases the conductivity which in turn oxidizes the pollutants more quickly, and results in the improved performance of the device. These qualities of semiconductor nanofibers of improving the efficiencies of the devices are anticipated to drive the growth of the global semiconductor nanofiber market. Semiconductor nanofibers are also prominently used in lithium batteries and chemical-biological sensors apart from being used in the production of advanced displays, magnetic devices, and EMI-shielding products, energy harvesters, piezoelectric field effect transistors, and hard disk drives. One major issue of concern with semiconductors is that when semiconductor materials are converted to the nanoscale, they tend to exhibit drastic changes in their chemical and physical properties. So choosing an appropriate material to be used for the production of semiconductor nanofiber is an important characteristic that should be considered by researchers and developers. In a semiconductor nanofiber, the holes and electrons generated by the exposure of devices to light or energy may recombine and would reduce the current flow and affect the effectiveness of the device. To overcome this limitation, semiconductor nanofiber developers add highly conductive nano-structure with the help of electrospinning, which results in the elimination of the hole-electron recombination issue. The conductive nano-structure includes graphene and carbon nanotubes, which assists in increasing the efficiency of semiconductor nanofibers. These technological advancements in the production of semiconductor nanofibers tend to drive the opportunities for growth of the global semiconductor nanofibers market.
