Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods with hexagram cross-section were prepared by vapor-phase transport method. The growth mechanism of the nanorods was discussed by considering diffusion effects of reactant gasses at high supersaturation. A strong ultraviolet peak at 391 nm and a weak visible band depending on the excitation wavelength were observed under the excitation by infrared femtosecond laser. The UV and the visible emission were respectively attributed to four-photon induced photoluminescence (FPPL) and third harmonic generation (THG). The characteristics and the generation mechanism of the FPPL were discussed.
