Squeezing Dynamics In A Nanowire System

Nanowires provide novel mechanisms for scaling down semiconductor electronics [1]. Semiconducting nanowires have electronically switchable characteristics suitable for simple readout that is appropriate for sensing. Since photoelectric signals from nanosensors can be immediately combined and routed to the external world, they can efficiently be coupled into miniaturized systems [2]. Recently, the physical characteristics of quantum
