A simple approach to Ag2S quantum dot (QD) modification was used to tune the field emission (FE) properties of ZnO nanowire arrays (NWAs). By a simple and facile successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) approach, Ag2S QDs were uniformly and densely packed on ZnO nanowires (NWs) to form ZnO-Ag2S core-shell heterojunction structures. The FE(More)
A series of ZnO-CdS-Ag2S ternary nanostructures with different amounts of Ag2S were prepared using simple and low-cost successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) and a chemical precipitation method. The ZnO nanowires, with a diameter of ∼ 100 nm and a length of ∼ 1 μm, were modified by coating CdS and Ag2S. CdS has a high absorption coefficient(More)
ZnO nanorod/porous silicon nanowire (ZnO/PSiNW) hybrids with three different structures as highly sensitive NO2 gas sensors were obtained. PSiNWs were first synthesized by metal-assisted chemical etching, and then seeded in three different ways. After that ZnO nanorods were grown on the seeded surface of PSiNWs using a hydrothermal procedure. ZnO/PSiNW(More)
