InGaAs/GaAs core-shell nanowires have been grown by molecular beam epitaxy. The core-shell nanowires show room temperature photoluminescence. At low temperatures their luminescence intensity is two to three orders of magnitudes larger than that of parent InGaAs nanowires grown without external GaAs shell. The nanowires have been structurally characterized by scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy.
