Characteristics of SnO2 One-Dimensional Nanomaterials Synthesized on TiN-Coated Substrates by the Evaporation of Sn Powders
One-dimensional structures of tin oxide (SnO2) on TiN-coated substrates were obtained by simple heating of Sn powders. X-ray diffraction, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, and the selected area electron diffraction showed that 1D structures are composed of SnO2 with rutile structure. The photoluminescence of the structures in the visible region suggests possible applications in nanoscaled optoelectronic devices.
