The specific geometry of III-V semiconductor makes III-V semiconductor nanowires (NWs) to promising building blocks for novel semiconductor devices in future electronic and opto-electronic applications. In this context a homogeneous distribution of the dopant over the whole NW is of great importance. We have grown p-type Zn-doped GaAs-NWs on GaP(111)B using the Au-assisted vapor-liquid-solid growth mode in a metal-organic vapor phase apparatus with different growth procedures. For the electrical characterization we apply a multitip STM as a nanoprober and conduct four-point probe measurements on single free-standing NWs. With this technique we are able to measure resistance profiles with a high spatial resolution over almost the whole length of a nanowire. These measurements reveal that the resistivity is both dependent on the growth condition and the part of the NW. Generally, the resistivity at the NW base is orders of magnitude larger compared to the upper part of the NW.
