Abstract:Growth of high-density and aligned ZnO nanorods on ZnO film substrate has been demonstrated using vapor-transport of thermally evaporated Zn metal powders followed by condensation. Morphological studies show that the nanorods grow preferentially from a hexagonal ZnO base with a uniform hexagonal structure following three-dimensional island-like growth mechanism. Structural and spectroscopic properties clearly indicate that the nanorods are relatively good and defect-free in quality. These nanorods have potential for technological implications.
