Structural Studies of ZnO Nanostructures and Nano Powders: A Recent Approach

June 9, 2021 Physical Science 0

Nanostructures and nanoparticles have attracted a lot of attention from scientists because of their unique features. Zinc Oxide has piqued the curiosity of researchers because it might be utilised as a low-cost alternative to Si and GaN. Because of its piezoelectric and transparent conducting capabilities, zinc oxide is one of the most promising semiconducting materials. In the visible area, it exhibits strong electrical conductivity and optical transparency, as well as strong UV absorption. As a result, it can be used as a window and sunscreen. Sensors, transducers, biomedical devices, optoelectronic devices, solar cells, and other nanostructured ZnO applications are common. In a muffle furnace, high purity Zinc is oxidised at high temperatures, resulting in nanostructures on the surface of metallic Zinc. The high-energy ball-milling technology is used to make ZnO particles. Because of its enormous direct band gap of 3.37 eV and strong exciton binding energy at ambient temperature, ZnO is widely employed. X-Ray Diffraction and scanning electron microscopy are used to examine the structure and morphology of ZnO Nanostructures. The structure and morphology of furnace melt ZnO Nano particles are the subject of this work.
