1D Zinc oxide nanostructures.....
1D single-crystalline zinc oxide nanostructures are promising for nanoscale optoelectronic applications. J.J. Wu et al. report in the Feb. 5 issue a simple chemical vapor deposition method for the growth of well-aligned ZnO nanorods at low temperature. The nanorods, which grow on fused silica and are preferentially oriented in the c-axis direction, are strongly UV light emitting, peaking at around 386 nm at room temperature (see: Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 215-218).
