Thin films composed of self-supporting ZnO nanowire arrays are fabricated via a hydrothermal approach without the presence of any substrates. The films can be transferred and bonded to an arbitrary substrate for device applications. As a demonstration, a piezoelectric converter is made which is able to generate electric charge under compressive forces.
