Modification of Electrical Properties of T-ZnO Whisker by Doping Fe


Article Preview

By means of high temperature solid-state reaction process, tetra-pod ZnO whisker (T-ZnOw) was doped with Fe(NO3)3. The doping induced the lattice distortion of the T-ZnOw, and improved its electrical properties significantly. After doping, the volume resistivity of the T-ZnOw decreased from 1010 &·cm to 103 &·cm, and its dielectric constant changed correspondingly.
