Abstract

A simple CTAB-assisted hydrothermal synthesis of undoped and copper-doped ZnO nanorods is reported. The phase and structural analysis carried out by X-ray diffraction, shows the formation of hexagonal wurtzite structure of ZnO. Morphology of the ZnO nanorods was investigated by electron microscopy techniques which showed the formation of well dispersed regular shape ZnO nanorods of 100 ± 10 nm in diameter and 900 ± 100 nm in length. However, size of the copper doped ZnO nanorod slightly increased with increasing copper concentration. Furthermore, the selected area electron diffraction pattern and high resolution transmission electron microscopy reveal that both the undoped and copper doped ZnO nanorods were single crystalline in nature and preferentially grew up along [0001] direction. Optical property was investigated by photoluminescence spectroscopy. The effects of copper doping on the photoluminescence property of ZnO nanorods were investigated.
