Structural, Electromechanical and Optical Characterization of ZnO Nanorods
ZnO nanorods were synthesized on ZnO-coated indium tin oxide (ITO) transparent conductive coating substrates using the chemical solution growth method. The effects of growth temperature on the morphology of the ZnO nanorods were investigated for 70–100 °C. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) were used to analyze the microstructures and crystalline characteristics of the nanorods, respectively. Photoluminescence (PL) and Raman scattering spectra were employed to characterize the optical properties of the nanorod arrays. Nanogenerators based on ZnO nanorod arrays were also fabricated. The nanogenerator current-voltage characteristics with Schottky-like behavior are discussed.
