Abstract: Abstract of thesis entitled FABRICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF ZINC OXIDE (ZnO) NANOSTRUCTURES Submitted by Leung Yu Hang For the degree of Master of Philosophy at The University of Hong Kong in January 2006 Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes by Iijima in 1991, increasing research effort has been devoted to the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials. Materials at this scale exhibit novel properties which cannot be found in their bulk form. In silicon nanowires, for example, the bandgap of Si nanowires increases from 1.1 eV to 3.7 eV when the nanowire diameter decreases from 7 nm to 1.3 nm. In recent years, nanostructures of various semiconductors like Si, gallium arsenide, gallium nitride, and zinc oxide have been demonstrated. Among them, ZnO has been recognized as a promising material for a variety of applications in the field of photonics, optoelectronics, gas sensing, field emission, and piezoelectrics. To realize the incorporation of ZnO nanostructures into real life applications, lots of work need to be done, including synthesis of the nanostructures, and understanding of their properties. In this study, a number of ZnO nanostructures (tetrapods, nanorods, nanoribbons/combs, multipods) were fabricated by thermal evaporation and hydrothermal synthesis methods. The morphologies and, structural and optical properties of the resultant nanostructures were then characterized by various techniques, such as scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, selected area electron diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffractometry, photoluminescence and electron paramagnetic resonance. It was observed that fabrication conditions could significantly affect the properties of the nanostructures. All nanostructures exhibited one UV peak and one broad peak in the visible spectrum. The major difference is that the nanostructures fabricated by thermal evaporation exhibited green PL emission while the nanorods synthesized by hydrothermal method gave yellow emission. Green emission was observed even without the presence of the EPR signal at g 1.96 in some samples. This result contradicts the commonly cited oxygen vacancy hypothesis of green emission of ZnO. Obviously, that hypothesis does not apply to all ZnO samples. The nanorod sample with yellow emission also exhibited strong EPR signal similar to the green emitting sample. A possible explanation for the obtained results is that there are two different deep levels responsible for the green and yellow emission respectively. Stimulated UV emission of three different nanostructures (tetrapods, nanoribbons/combs, and nanorods) was studied by time-resolved photoluminescence (TRPL). It was observed that different nanostructures exhibited different lasing thresholds, emission delay times and decay times. The difference in the lasing behaviors of the nanostructures is likely due to the difference in morphology, mode of cavity, or even native defects present in the material.

Abstract: Abstract of thesis entitled Synthesis and characterization of nanostructured metallic Zinc and Zinc oxide submitted by Amol Muley B.Eng (VNIT, Nagpur) for the degree of Master of Philosophy at The University of Hong Kong in June 2007 In 1965, Gordan Moore predicted the future of integrated circuits technology when he stated that every two years the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits would double. This prediction has become a reality, but sustaining this exponential size decrease is a big challenge for the future of IC technology, requiring extensive research into new materials and new processes in order to advance in nanoscale IC technology. In the last few years research has been conducted to fabricate technologically useful nanostructured semi-conducting materials like silicon, gallium arsenide, gallium nitride and zinc oxide. ZnO has been recognized as a promising material, with potential applications in fields such as optoelectronics, laser diodes and field effect transistors. In this study two different approaches, top-down (AFM oxidation lithography) and bottom-up (thermal evaporation) were used to synthesize nanostructured ZnO. The first part of the study demonstrates the local oxidation of metallic zinc induced by a conducting atomic force microscopy (AFM) tip. The effect of factors such as bias voltage, pulse duration and scan speed on the oxidation rate were examined. The oxide growth rate was found to increase linearly with the logarithm of the bias voltage at a constant pulse duration, and to decrease with the oxide height at a constant bias voltage. Increasing the scan speed has the same effect as reducing the pulse duration. The oxidation rate was also found to rise with the relative humidity at a constant temperature, and to drop with temperature at constant far-field humidity. The drop of the oxidation rate with temperature is thought to be due to the localized evaporation of the moisture content from the sample-tip gap region at elevated temperatures. Another potential application of ZnO, the Schottky diode, is also demonstrated. The second part of the study deals with the fabrication of highly facetted, hexagonal-shaped metallic Zn nanocrystals. These nanocrystals were synthesized by a simple catalyst-free thermal evaporation technique on a Si (001) substrate using Zn pellets as the source material. The Zn nanocrystals were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The nanocrystals of a size range 100-200 nm were {10 10} found to be highly facetted along {0001} and planes. The possibility of the presence of a thin ZnO layer on the surface of the as-deposited Zn nanocrystals was revealed by SAD analyses. This was further confirmed by exposing the Zn nanocrystals to air, which led to the formation of an epitaxial Zn-ZnO core-shell having a similar crystallographic orientation.

Book Description :

Traditional materials for thermoelectric such as bismuth telluride have been studied and utilized commercially for the last half century, but recent advancements in materials selection are one of the principal function of the active thermoelectric device as it determines the reliability of the fabrication regarding technical and economic aspects. Recently, many researcher's efforts have been made to utilize oxide nanomaterials for wearable thermoelectric power generator (WTPG) applications which may provide environmental stable, mechanical flexibility, and light weight with low cost of manufacturing. In precise, fabric containing oxide metals have shown great promise as P−/N-type materials with improved transport and UV shielding properties. On the other hand, we have focused on ZnO nanostructures as a high-efficiency WTPG material because they are non-toxic to skin, inexpensive and easy to obtain and possess attractive electronic properties, which means that they are available for clothing with low-cost fabrication. To our observation, we are chaptering about the thermoelectric properties of ZnO and their composite nanostructures coated cotton fabric via the solvothermal method for the first time.

Book Description :

Nanostructures for Antimicrobial Therapy discusses the pros and cons of the use of nanostructured materials in the prevention and eradication of infections, highlighting the efficient microbicidal effect of nanoparticles against antibiotic-resistant pathogens and biofilms. Conventional antibiotics are becoming ineffective towards microorganisms due to their widespread and often inappropriate use. As a result, the development of antibiotic resistance in microorganisms is increasingly being reported. New approaches are needed to confront the rising issues related to infectious diseases. The merging of biomaterials, such as chitosan, carrageenan, gelatin, poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) with nanotechnology provides a promising platform for antimicrobial therapy as it provides a controlled way to target cells and induce the desired response without the adverse effects common to many traditional treatments. Nanoparticles represent one of the most promising therapeutic treatments to the problem caused by infectious micro-organisms resistant to traditional therapies. This volume discusses this promise in detail, and also discusses what challenges the greater use of nanoparticles might pose to medical professionals. The unique physiochemical properties of nanoparticles, combined with their growth inhibitory capacity against microbes has led to the upsurge in the research on nanoparticles as antimicrobials. The importance of bactericidal nanobiomaterials study will likely increase as development of resistant strains of bacteria against most potent antibiotics continues. Shows how nanoantibiotics can be used to more effectively treat disease Discusses the advantages and issues of a variety of different nanoantibiotics, enabling medics to select which best meets their needs Provides a cogent summary of recent developments in this field, allowing readers to quickly familiarize themselves with this topic area

Book Description :

The goal of this thesis is the development of scalable, low cost synthesis of metal oxide nanostructures based electrodes and to correlate the chemical modifications with their energy conversion performance. Methods in energy conversion in this thesis have focused on two aspects; a potentiometric chemical sensor was used to determine the analytical concentration of some components of the analyte solution such as dopamine, glucose and glutamate molecules. The second aspect is to fabricate a photo-electrochemical (PEC) cell. The biocompatibility, excellent electro-catalytic activities and fast electron transfer kinetics accompanied with a high surface area to volume ratio; are properties of some metal oxide nanostructures that of a potential for their use in energy conversion. Furthermore, metal oxide nanostructures based electrode can effectively be improved by the physical or a chemical modification of electrode surface. Among these metal oxide nanostructures are cobalt oxide (Co3O4), zinc oxide (ZnO), and bismuth-zincvanadate (BiZn2VO6) have all been studied in this thesis. Metal oxide nanostructures based electrodes are fabricated on gold-coated glass substrate by low temperature (< 100 0C) wet chemicalapproach. X-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy were used to characterize the electrodes while ultraviolet-visible absorption and photoluminescence were used to investigate the optical properties of the nanostructures. The resultant modified electrodes were tested for their performance as chemical sensors and for their efficiency in PEC activities. Efficient chemically modified electrodes were demonstrated through doping with organic additives like anionic, nonionic or cationic surfactants. The organic additives are showing a crucial role in the growth process of metal oxide nanocrystals and hence can beused to control the morphology. These organic additives act also as impurities that would significantly change the conductivity of the electrodes. However, no organic compounds dependence was observed to modify the crystallographic structure. The findings in this thesis indicate the importance of the use of controlled nanostructures morphology for developing efficient functional materials.
