Vertical III-V semiconductor nanowires have shown promising absorption of light for solar cell and photodetector applications. The absorption properties can be tuned through the choice of III-V materials and geometry of the nanowires. Here, we review the recent progress in the design of the absorption properties of both individual nanowires and nanowire arrays. Future directions for the research field are proposed.
