Yuvaraj, D and Nanda, KK and Rao, K Narasimha (2009) Synthesis of ZnO Nanoneedles on Flexible Polymer Substrates at Room Temperature by Activated Reactive Evaporation. In: Current Nanoscience, 5 (3). pp. 283-288.Full text not available from this repository.
ZnO nanoneedles were successfully deposited on flexible polymer substrates at room temperature by activated reactive evaporation. Neither a catalyst nor a template was employed in this synthesis. These synthesized needles measured 500 - 600 nm in length and its diameter varied from 30 - 15 nm from the base to the tip. The single-crystalline nature of the nanoneedle was observed by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy studies. The Raman studies on these nanoneedles had shown that they are oxygen deficient in nature. A possible growth mechanism has been proposed here, in which the nanoneedles nucleate and grow in the gas phase by vapor-solid mechanism.
