Abstract

The luminescent and structural properties of ZnO nanorods prepared under different conditions were investigated. ZnO nanostructures were fabricated in air and under argon and nitrogen gas flow. The results showed that the nanostructures fabricated in humid argon flow showed higher UV than green emission and had smaller average sizes than tetrapod nanostructures obtained in air showing stronger green than UV emission.
