Heterostructured metal-CdSe-metal nanowires were fabricated by sequential electrochemical deposition of layers of Au and the semiconductor CdSe. Nonlinear I-V curves were observed, and a parameter retrieval model was used to extract the majority carrier mobility of 0.5 cm(2) V-1 s(-1) for nanowires fabricated with zero deposition current during the exchange of the final CdSe and Au segments. This improved threefold with the application of a small current during the solution exchange. Values for the resistance and the electron density for these nanowires were determined.
