Paper Title:
ZnO Nanoarrays Film Grown by Forced-Hydrolysis-Initiated-Nucleation Technique and its Photo-Induced Electrical Property
  Abstract

Anhydrous zinc acetate pre-coated on the FTO substrate was served as a template layer, and ZnO nanowhisker arrays were simply and successfully fabricated by its forced-hydrolysis-initiated-nucleation of the layer in an aqueous solution at low temperature below 100 °C. The technique doesn’t need any expensive metal catalyst and high-temperature treatment. The density, diameter and length of whiskers were controllable by changing the deposition time. As-grown ZnO nanoarrays showed photo-induced electrical property. Enhanced photo-induced current (2.0~3.0  10-5 A) was detected under laser irradiation after DNA molecules labeled with dye molecules were loaded on the ZnO nanowhisker arrays.
