Abstract

Three different ZnO nanomaterials (nanobelts, nanorods, and nanowires) were synthesized at three different substrate temperatures from the thermal evaporation of ball-milled ZnO powders at 1380°C. Transmission electron microscopy revealed that the ZnO nanobelts are single crystalline with the growth direction perpendicular to the (0 1 1̄ 0) lattice planes, and that the ZnO nanorods and nanowires are single crystalline with the growth directions perpendicular to the (0 0 0 1) and (1 1 2̄ 0) lattice planes, respectively. In cathodoluminescence, the peak energy of near band-edge emission was determined for the nanobelts, nanorods, and nanowires.
