Paper Abstract

A low-temperature hydrothermal process for the growth of ZnO nanostructures on patterned Si substrates was investigated with the aim of their future exploitation as functional cores of nanopiezotronic applications. The study focused on understanding the role of the growth factors in order to better control the suggested process and to introduce it as a low-cost, repeatable and reliable method for large-scale ZnO nanorod production. The parameters that were examined were: (a) the role of the substrate, and (b) the concentration of the metal precursor in conjunction with the growth temperature and time.
