The control of local light emission and conductivity in ZnO is reported. The method detailed here can be used to engineer the optical as well as electrical properties of ZnO two-dimensional thin films and one-dimensional nanostructures on the nanometer scale. The Figure shows an engineered nanoribbon with a pre-designed emission pattern.
