A native interfacial doping layer introduced in core–shell type ZnO nano­wires by a simple vapor phase re-growth procedure endows the produced nano­wires with both excellent electrical and optical performances compared to conventional homogeneous ZnO nanowires. The unique Zn-rich interfacial structure in the core–shell nanowires plays a crucial role in the outstanding performances.
