Features of ZnO Nanocrystal Size Distribution in a Polymer Matrix
X-ray diffraction patterns of a photocurable epoxy acryl-based polymer composite with addition of ZnO nanocrystals are analyzed. We recover the size distribution function of the ZnO nanocrystals and estimate the median size of the nanocrystals (∼40–50 nm) from a detailed analysis of the most intensive peak in the X-ray diffraction pattern.
