Fabrication and Characterization of In-Doped Zinc Oxide Nanodisks
In-doped ZnO nanodisks were successfully fabricated by thermal evaporation Zn, In2O3 and graphite powder mixture without catalyst. Morphology, structures and components of ZnO nanodisks were investigated by SEM, HRTEM, EDS and X-Ray diffraction. ZnO nanodisks have perfect hexagonal shape, with 1~3μm size and 40~100 nm in thickness. The nanodisks are single-crystalline ZnO with wurtzite structure and In content of nanodisks reaches 2.2%. The growth along  is suppressed leading to the formation of ZnO nanodisks. Room temperature photoluminescence spectra of the nanodisks shows that the UV emission peak blueshifts and becomes broader after doping.
