Paper Abstract

We have succeeded in growing various ZnO nanocrystals, such as nanowires, nanorods, and nanowalls, by a nanoparticle-assisted pulsed-laser deposition (NAPLD). In this study, low-density ZnO nanowires were synthesized by introduction of a ZnO buffer layer. Low-density hexagonal cone-shape ZnO cores are formed on the buffer layer, and vertically-aligned ZnO nanowires are grown on the cores. The density of the nanowires was clearly decreased with increasing the thickness of the Buffer layer. The buffer layer can be used as one of the effective additives to control the growth density of the ZnO nano-crystals synthesized by NAPLD.
