Zno Nanostructures Grown By Thermal Evaporation And Thermal Decomposition Methods
We report on the growth of novel ZnO nanostructures using thermal evaporation and thermal decomposition methods. Thermal evaporation is used to produce ZnO/carbon nanotubes heterostructures, while ZnO nanocrystals were produced by thermal decomposition of zinc alginate gels. The nanostructures were characterized by a variety of techniques including x-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, Raman scattering, and photoluminescence spectroscopy. Semi-empirical molecular orbital calculations gave information on the nature of the binding between ZnO and carbon nanotubes.
