Two flame-based synthesis methods are presented for fabricating ZnO-nanostructure-based UV photodetectors: burner flame transport synthesis (B-FTS)and crucible flame transport synthesis (C-FTS). B-FTS allows rapid growth of ZnO nanotetrapods and in situ bridging of them into electrical contacts. The photo detector made from interconnected ZnO nanotetrapod(More)
An ultra lightweight carbon microtube material called Aerographite is synthesized by a novel single-step chemical vapor deposition synthesis based on ZnO networks, which is presently the lightest known material with a density smaller than μg/cm(3). Despite its low density, the hierarchical design leads to remarkable mechanical, electrical, and optical(More)
Direct growth of quasi-one-dimensional nano- and microstructures in desired places of complex shaped substrates using simple growth methods is highly demanded aspect for various applications. In this work, we have demonstrated direct integration of ZnO nano- and microneedles into Si trenches by a novel flame transport synthesis approach in a single(More)
With increasing production and applications of nanostructured zinc oxide, e.g., for biomedical and consumer products, the question of safety is getting more and more important. Different morphologies of zinc oxide structures have been synthesized and accordingly investigated. In this study, we have particularly focused on nano-micro ZnO tetrapods (ZnO-T),(More)
ZnO particles of different size and structures were used as fillers to modify the silicone rubber, in order to reveal the effect of the filler shape in the polymer composites. Tetrapodal shaped microparticles, short microfibers/whiskers, and nanosized spherical particles from ZnO have been used as fillers to fabricate the different ZnO-Silicone composites.(More)
The intrinsic strain at coupled components in magnetoelectric composites plays an important role for the properties and function of these materials. In this in situ X-ray nanodiffraction experiment, the coating-induced as well as the magnetic-field-induced strain at the coupled interface of complex magnetoelectric microcomposites were investigated. These(More)
