Abstract

A simple synthesis route to high-quality sub-50 nm ZnO nanowires is reported, utilizing ZnO thin films grown by pulse laser deposition (PLD) as seed layers. Depending upon the PLD growth conditions, the surface morphology of the ZnO nanowires on ZnO film was distinctively different whereas the diameters were almost the same. With the increase of the concentration of zinc nitrate/methenamine solution from 0.002 to 0.02 M, the average diameter of the ZnO nanowire increased but remained sub-50 nm. The grown ZnO nanowires showed a high crystallinity with a low defect density confirmed by a sharp photoluminescence spectrum.
