The potential distribution in a deformed ZnO nanowire relies upon its piezoelectric and semiconductive properties. Here we systematically investigate the influence of different parameters on the equilibrium potential distribution. In particular we calculate the electric potential distribution when thermodynamic equilibrium among free charge carriers is achieved for nanowires under different doping concentrations (n or p type), different applied forces, and different geometric configurations. We show that doping concentration is the parameter that mostly affects the magnitude and distribution of the piezoelectric potential. © 2009.
