Abstract: Synthesis of nanostructured ZnO by an environmentally-friendly method thus applying water as the major media is the aim in solution-immersion method. In this paper, the effect of three types of seeded template to the structural and optical properties of ZnO nanostructures grown by the Solution-Immersion method is investigated. The primary template is glass, seeded with three types of thin films i.e. TiO2 by radio-frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering at 200 W (ZnO/TiO2), a layer of PMMA by spin-coating (ZnO/PMMA) and ZnO grown by the mist-atomization method (ZnO/ZnO). The morphology and optical properties will be investigated by FESEM, PL and UV-Vis.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
