We investigated the influence of the growth method, growth conditions, and post-growth treatments on the ZnO nanorod properties and the performance of heterojunction light emitting diodes (LEDs) based on ZnO nanorods. Due to small lattice mismatch between GaN and ZnO, we will mainly consider p-GaN/n-ZnO nanorod heterojunctions. The influence of p-GaN substrate and the influence of growth method and growth conditions used for ZnO nanorods on the LED performance will be discussed.
