Abstract

A new four-contact method is proposed to accurately determine the resistivity of a single nanowire and of other nanostructures. Unlike the conventional four-contact method or two-contact method, the new scheme does not require nonrectifying (Ohmic) contacts to the nanowire, and can completely eliminate the systematic errors resulting from the contact resistance or the resistance difference between the contacts. The present method has been successfully applied to a copper nanowire and can be used as a universal resistivity measurement scheme for all nanowires and other nanostructures.
