Tin Oxide One-Dimensional Nanomaterials Grown on Silver-Coated Substrates
We demonstrated the production of tin oxide (SnO2) one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures on silver (Ag)-coated substrates by the thermal evaporation of Sn powders. Scanning electron microscopy revealed that the product consisted of 1D nanomaterials with average diameters or widths in the range of 50-1300 nm. X-ray diffraction and high resolution electron microscopy coincidentally indicated that the nanostructures were mainly single-crystalline rutile structure of SnO2. The PL measurement with the Gaussian fitting showed visible light emission bands centered at 579 nm and 624 nm.
