A simple solution growth process was employed to deposit ZnO nanowires on glass slides. The batch process was scaled from one to multiple glass slides with no apparent scaling limit observed. Strong green emission, distinctive of the ZnO surface luminescence, was measured and visualized in individual nanowires. This technique can be used to grow high-quality ZnO nanowires on any substrate.
