A Review on Zinc Oxide Nanostructures: Doping and Gas Sensing
This paper presents a review on synthesis, structure, and growth mechanisms of one-dimensional nanostructures of ZnO. Solution-based method is a potential deposition technique for large-scale production as its advantages; the low cost, the simplicity of experimental set-up, and the low operating temperature. Mist-atomiser technique is one of the solution-based methods in synthesizing optimized ZnO nanostructures. Doping will lead for better properties of ZnO, which result to wide application area. Nanostructured ZnO is important in promising areas of application which devices utilizing nanostructures such as gas sensors and solar cells, since it is fairly easy to fabricate such forms of ZnO nanostructures, which have good charge carrier transport properties and high crystalline quality.
