Thermally Evaporated In2O3 Nanoloquats with Tunable Broad-Band Emissions
Abstract:We describe synthesis of In2O3 nanoloquats grown by thermal evaporation under different oxygen flow rates and temperatures. Gold nanoparticles were used the catalysts and were dispersed on the silicon wafer to assist growth of In2O3 nanoloquats. The nanostructures of In2O3 nanoloquats were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The photoluminescence study reveals that In2O3 nanoloquats could emit different broad-band luminescence peaks in the range of 410∼620 nm by tuning different oxygen flow rates and temperatures. The wide tuning range in the emission peaks of In2O3 nanoloquats has potential in applications of white light illumination.
