  • Research sponsored by MDI N00014-95-1-1116 for the Office of Naval Research, NSF, and NASA.


Nanostructures of wurtzite-structured zinc sulfide, which is unlikely to be stable at room temperature under conventional conditions, have been synthesized by a simple physical process. Morphologies with belt- (see Figure), saw-, comb-, and windmill-like nanostructures have been observed and characterized using a variety of imaging techniques.
