A convenient thermal CVD route to core-shell GaP@GaN and GaN@GaP nanowires is developed. The structural analyses indicate that the nanowires exhibit a two-layer and wirelike structure. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) images reveal misfit dislocation loops at the interface of the nanowires. Unusual temperature dependences of the photoluminescence (PL) intensity of GaP@GaN nanowires are observed, and they are interpreted by the piezoelectric effect induced from lattice mismatch between two semiconductor layers. In the Raman spectra of GaN@GaP nanowires, an unexpected peak at 386 cm-1 is found and assigned to a surface phonon mode.
