Temperature-dependent growth mode of W-doped ZnO nanostructures
We report on the effects of glass substrate temperature on the crystal structure and morphology of
tungsten (W)-doped ZnO nanostructures synthesized by pulsed-laser deposition. X-ray diffraction analysis
data shows that the W-doped ZnO thin films exhibit a strongly preferred orientation along a c-axis
(000L) plane, while scanning electron and atomic force microscopes reveal that well-aligned W-doped
ZnO nanorods with unique shape were directly and successfully synthesized at substrate temperature
of 550 ?C and 600 ?C without any underlying catalyst or template. Possible growth mechanism of these
nanorods is suggested and discussed.
