Terahertz spectroscopy is employed for the noncontact measurement of transversal mobility in InP nanowires, wherein photonic effects (waveguiding of excitation beam and propagation of terahertz beam in a complex gradient environment) were successfully deconvoluted. Monte Carlo calculations accounting for electron localization and heavy doping were used to determine electron momentum relaxation time corresponding to electron mobility ≥3000cm2/Vs, which is similar to that in bulk InP. The developed approach paves a way for noncontact determination of charge mobility in advanced semiconductor nanostructures.
