A Facile Method for Morphological Control of MgZnO Nanostructures on GaAs Substrates and Their Optical Properties
Abstract:This research reports on morphological changes depending on the growth temperature in MgZnO nanostructures grown on GaAs substrates by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition as well as the investigation of their optical properties. As the growth temperature increased, the morphology of the MgZnO nanostructure changed from one-dimensional nanowires (480 °C) to pseudo-two-dimensional nanowalls (500 °C) to pyramid-shaped structures (520 °C). Among these structures, the nanowalls exhibited the best optical properties due to the large active surface area and high crystalline quality.
