Vertically aligned ZnO nanowires have been prepared, and structural characterization shows that the nanowires have relatively high crystalline quality. The dominant free exciton emission and the appearance of B-type exciton emissions at low temperatures reveal the high optical quality of the nanowires. Au-MgO-ZnO nanowire structures have been constructed,(More)
Electrically pumped random lasing has been realized in Au/MgO/ZnO structures. By incorporating Ag nanoparticles, whose extinction spectrum overlaps well with the emission spectrum of the structures, the threshold of the random lasing can be decreased from 63 mA to 21 mA. The decrease in the threshold has been attributed to the resonant coupling between the(More)
Ultraviolet photodetectors have been fabricated from ZnO quantum dots/carbon nanodots hybrid films, and the introduction of carbon nanodots improves the performance of the photodetectors greatly. The photodetectors can be used to detect very weak ultraviolet signals (as low as 12 nW/cm(2)). The detectivity and noise equivalent power of the photodetector can(More)
To increase the responsivity is one of the vital issues for a photodetector. By employing ZnO as a representative material of ultraviolet photodetectors and Si as a representative material of visible photodetectors, an impact ionization process, in which additional carriers can be generated in an insulating layer at a relatively large electric field, has(More)
Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanocolumns have been prepared by a metal-organic chemical vapor deposition technique, and structural and optical characterization reveal that the nanocolumns have high crystalline and luminescent qualities. Au/MgO/ZnO/In structured Schottky diodes have been fabricated from the nanocolumns. An intense emission can be detected from the(More)
Well-aligned ZnO nanowires have been prepared on sapphire substrate, and structural and optical characterizations indicate that the nanowires are of single crystalline and have relatively high luminescent quality. By employing the ZnO nanowires as an active layer, p-Zn0.68Mg0.32O:N/n-ZnO nanowire heterostructure light-emitting devices (LEDs) have been(More)
We propose a kind of hybrid plasmonic Fabry-Perot (F-P) microcavity consisting of ZnO microwires with quadrate cross-section and planar multilayer metal-insulator-metal (MIM) homostructures with a nanoscale SiO₂ gap in between. MIM homostructures can be used to create a micro-resonator that simultaneously provides feedback for laser action and supports the(More)
ZnO p-n homojunction light-emitting devices (LEDs) have been fabricated, and by introducing a p-type GaN as the hole-injection layer, the output power of the LEDs can reach 18.5 μW when the drive current is 60 mA, which is almost three orders of magnitude larger than the pristine LEDs without the hole-injection layer. The improved performance can be(More)
Paper, as one of the most important information carriers, has contributed to the development and transmission of human civilization greatly. Meanwhile, a serious problem of environmental sustainable development caused by the production and utilization of paper has been resulted to modern society. Therefore, a simple and green route is urgently demanded to(More)
