Transferable ZnO tetrapods were grown by an aqueous solution method. An individual ZnO tetrapod-based sensor was fabricated by in situ lift-out technique and its ultraviolet (UV) and gas sensing properties were investigated. This single tetrapod-based device responds to the UV light rapidly and showed a recovery time of about 23 s. The sensitivity of a(More)
An ultraviolet photosensor has been successfully constructed by the in situ lift-out method in a focused ion beam system. The prototype consists of individual naturally self-assembled crossed ZnO nanorods grown by an aqueous solution process. The current–voltage (I–V) characteristics show linear behavior. The photosensor exhibits a response of ∼15 mA/W for(More)
This paper presents an inexpensive and fast fabrication method for one-dimensional (1D) ZnO nanorod arrays and branched two-dimensional (2D), three-dimensional (3D) – nanoarchitectures. Our synthesis technique includes the use of an aqueous solution route and post-growth rapid thermal annealing. It permits rapid and controlled growth of ZnO nanorod arrays(More)

We report the fabrication of an individual carbon nanotube (CNT) electron field emitter using a focused-ion-beam (FIB) technique. The monolithic multiwall CNT with a graphitic shield is synthesized using chemical vapor deposition technique. The FIB technique is applied to attach the monolithic multiwall CNT on an etched tungsten tip. Field emission(More)
