Metal oxide nanomaterials with different morphologies have attracted particular attention because of their stucture combined with a variety of assets with a wide range of potential applications. These nanostructures can not only receive the properties from their bulk form such as piezoelectricity, magnetoresistance, chemical sensing and photodetection, but also possess distinctive properties associated with their highly anisotropic geometry and size. This paper focuses on synthesis and characterization of ZnO and CuO nanopowders obtained using physical vapor deposition using solar energy.
