Abstract: ZnO nanorod arrays find applications in solar energy conversion, light emission and other promising areas. One approach to generate ZnO nanorods is the cost efficient aqueous chemical growth (ACG). Usually the ACG process is based on a nucleation step followed by growth of ZnO nanorods in aqueous solution at temperatures below 95 • C.We report on the fabrication of homogeneous, large scale arrays of nanorods on various substrate materials (Si, glass, polymer) by ACG. PL-measurements show surprisingly good opt…
