The effect of post-growth annealing on the colour properties of the light emitted by n-ZnO nanorods/p-GaN white LEDs has been investigated. The as-grown ZnO nanorods were annealed in nitrogen, oxygen, argon and air atmospheres at 6008C for 30 minutes. The colour rendering indices and correlated colour temperatures were calculated from the spectra emitted by the LEDs. It was observed that the ambient atmosphere used for annealing is very effective for altering the colour properties of the fabricated LEDs. The LEDs annealed in nitrogen have excellent colour rendering properties with a colour rendering index and a correlated colour temperature of 97 and 2363 K, respectively, in the forward bias and 98 and 3157K in the reverse bias.
