Nanostructured Ag nanoparticles (Ag-NPs)/nanoporous ZnO micrometer-rods (n-ZnO MRs) have been synthesized by a two-step method. The n-ZnO MRs was initially prepared by solvothermal-assisted heat treatment. The rods had the diameter ranged from 90 to 150 nm and length between 0.5 and 3 μm. They were found to be porous and were composited of ZnO nanopartiles(More)
Supercapacitors (also known as ultracapacitors) are considered to be the most promising approach to meet the pressing requirements of energy storage. Supercapacitive electrode materials, which are closely related to the high-efficiency storage of energy, have provoked more interest. Herein, we present a high-capacity supercapacitor material based on the(More)
Controlling the synthesis of atomic-thick nanosheets of nonlayered materials is extremely challenging because of the lack of an intrinsic driving force for anisotropic growth of two-dimensional (2D) structures. In that case, control of the anisotropy such as oriented attachment of small building blocks during the reaction process will be an effective way to(More)
Silicon, being in the same group in the periodic table as carbon, plays a key role in modern semiconductor industry. However, unlike carbon nanotube (NT), progress remains relatively slow in silicon NT (SiNT) and SiNT-based heteroarchitectures, which would be the fundamental building blocks of various nanoscale circuits, devices, and systems. Here, we(More)
Nanocontainers have great potentials in targeted drug delivery and nanospace-confined reactions. However, the previous synthetic approaches exhibited limited control over the morphology, size and materials of the nanocontainers, which are crucial in practical applications. Here, we present a synthetic approach to multi-segment linear-shaped nanopores with(More)
To detect polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), a prototype of a porous ZnO sensor based on the surface photovoltage (SPV) mechanism working under visible light illumination at room temperature has been presented. The SPV of the porous ZnO sensor can be remarkably reduced under visible light illumination after PCB adsorption, and the reduction of amplitude is(More)
Porous anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) templates were prepared by a two-step anodization process, then chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method was used to prepare well-aligned open-ended multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) arrays in the AAO templates that also served as catalyst. Gas ionization sensors were fabricated using the MWCNT arrays. The gas ionization(More)
We report on the controlled growth of germanium (Ge) nanostructures in the form of both nanowire (NW) and nanotube (NT) with ultrahigh aspect ratios and variable diameters. The nanostructures are grown inside a porous anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) template by low-temperature chemical vapor deposition (CVD) assisted by an electrodeposited metal nanorod(More)
