2006 (English)In: Physica Scripta, ISSN 0031-8949, Vol. T126, 131-134 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
ZnO nanostructures were grown by thermal evaporation technique on ( 001) Si substrate and were characterized by photoluminescence measurements, scanning electron microscope and x-ray measurements. The results show that the formation of ZnO nanostructures is strongly influenced by the growth conditions. By optimizing the growth conditions, orientated ZnO nanorods with a diameter of around 300 nm and lengths of 20 - 35 mu m have been achieved, and they show excellent optical properties. The laser action is observed at room temperature by using optical pumping.
