ZnO nanopillar arrays with high aspect ratios, such as the one shown in the figure, are fabricated from aqueous solutions at low temperatures using a polymer mold. The shape and dimensions of the nanopillars can be tuned by appropriately patterning the polymer mold. A hexagonal ZnO nanopillar array shows photonic bandgaps at visible wavelengths, as predicted by photonic band structure calculations.
