Preparation and Characterization of Skin-Colored N-Doped ZnO Nanocrystals


Article Preview

In this paper, we report a simple two-step approach (microwave-calcinating) to prepare skin-colored N-doped ZnO nanocrystals. X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and UV-visible absorption were used to characterize the as-synthesized products. The FESEM results reveal the products mainly take on the morphology of porous flake constructed by 20 nm nanoparticles. UV-Vis spectrum shows a strong absorption peak located at 384nm.
