Investigation of Nanomaterials Prepared by Thermal Evaporation of Carbon-ZnO Mixtures
ZnO and other nanomaterials were synthesized by thermal evaporation process by carbon assisted method using powder ZnO as a precursors at temperature 1200 oC in one atmosphere of nitrogen for 3 hours. The diameter of nanofibers and nanowires vary from 50 nm to 200 nm and length of several ten micrometers. The size of nanorods vary from 20 nm to 100 nm and length of a few micrometers. The stereo microscope with an image analyzer and scanning electron microscope instruments are used to characterize these nanostructured materials.
