Paper Abstract

Anodic physical deposition is a method that joins technical simplicity, environment friendly, non-toxic, low investment cost, and ease in morphology control. Nanoporous ZnO with high internal rough surface and polycrystalline nature has been prepared via a simple chemical technique. Anodization of Znic (Zn) foil was studied in a mixed of ammonium sulfate and sodium hydroxide solution under the affect of various anodization durations. The as-prepared samples were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), and energy dispersive analysis of X-rays (EDX). An optical characterization by a Raman spectrometer was performed to investigate their optical properties. The PL and Raman results revealed both good compromise with the features of our samples and dormant for forthcoming utilizations for example smart sensors system and other modern solid state technologies. The formation of porous structures has been confirmed by Raman spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy investigations.
