Abstract:Well directionally grown Ce-doped ZnO nanowires were successfully synthesized by a simple hydrothermal method. The Ce dopant plays a key role in evolving the morphology, affecting the crystalline size, and forming the uniform nanostructure of the ZnO nanowires. The amount of Ce dopant in the ZnO nanowires also affects the regions of blue-shift in the UV and green emission peaks and the intensities of emission peaks based on the cathodoluminescence spectra of the nanowires. Moreover, the effect of Ce doping amount on the microstructure of the nanowires is also presented.
