Abstract

We have measured the local resistances in the arms and at the junction in a ZnO tetrapod separately by means of ac impedance spectroscopy. The resistance at the junction is found to be even greater than that in the arms although a volume fraction of the junction is negligibly small compared to that of the arms. This result clearly demonstrates that the junction plays a decisive role in the overall electrical property of the ZnO-tetrapod and thus determines the functionality of the ZnO tetrapod electronic devices.
