Structural and Electronic Properties of ZnO Nanoparticles Grown on p-Si and Al2O3 Substrates by Using Spin Coating and Thermal Treatment
Abstract:ZnO nanoparticles were formed on p-Si and Al2O3 substrates by using spin coating and thermal treatment method. Scanning electron microscopy images and X-ray energy dispersive spectrometry profiles showed that ZnO nanoparticles were formed on p-Si and Al2O3 substrates. X-ray diffraction patterns showed that ZnO nanoparticles formed on the p-Si substrates had polycrystalline hexagonal wurtzite structures and that those formed on the Al2O3 substrates had a c-axis preferential orientation. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy profiles showed that the O 1s and the Zn 2p peaks corresponding to the ZnO nanoparticles were observed.
