Structural, morphological and photoluminescence properties of W-doped ZnO nanostructures
W-doped ZnO nanostructures were synthesized at substrate temperature of 600 8C by pulsed laser
deposition (PLD), from different wt% ofWO3 and ZnOmixed together. The resulting nanostructures have
been characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and
photoluminescence for structural, surface morphology and optical properties as function of W-doping.
XRD results show that the films have preferred orientation along a c-axis (0 0 L) plane. We have observed
nanorods on all samples, except that W-doped samples show perfectly aligned nanorods. The nanorods
exhibit near-band-edge (NBE) ultraviolet (UV) and violet emissions with strong deep-level blue
emissions and green emissions at room temperature.
