"it depends upon the specific metal oxides. For zinc oxide its definitely chemical synthesis. For other metal oxides CVD is also widely used. Ofter gold nano particles are used as seed for growing nano rods."
"Department of Engineering Physics , IIT Bombay offers an specialization program in nanosciences. The degree offered is a five year dual degree program (B. Tech and M. Tech) in "Engineering Physics with specialization in nanosciences"."
