Synthesis and optical properties of undoped and aluminum doped ZnO nanowires for optoelectronic nanodevice applications

Conference Paper

Zinc oxide (ZnO) is a major wide band gap semiconductor material for optoelectronic and photonic devices because of its exceptional optical properties, arising from the combination of a wide band gap (~3.37 eV) and a large exciton binding energy (~60 meV) [1]. One-dimensional ZnO nanostructures, such as nanowires and nanorods, further exhibit unique properties that make them attractive for Nan devices, especially in the ultraviolet (UV) spectral range.
