Paper Abstract

Zinc oxide (ZnO) crystals can be grown by vapor phase transport, hydrothermal solution growth, and high pressure melt growth. Three inch size single crystal has been demonstrated by the hydrothermal growth technique. We will emphasis on the hydrothermal technology of large size ZnO crystal. Material characteristics are discussed and compared to ZnO fabricated from vapor phase and melt growth. A route to obtain high-quality, single-crystalline ZnO films with mechanically untouched surfaces is employed to screen the doping of ZnO under the conditions of growth near the thermodynamic equilibrium. Future trends in ZnO crystal growth technology will be discussed.
