This paper reports on the synthesis of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures and examines the performance of nanocomposite thin-film transistors (TFTs) fabricated using ZnO dispersed in both n- and p-type polymer host matrices. The ZnO nanostructures considered here comprise nanowires and tetrapods and were synthesized using vapor phase deposition techniques(More)
Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowire networks have been proposed as an alternative to organic and amorphous semiconductors for plastic electronics. Although the mobility of the ZnO networks is lower than that of individual nanowires, they offer the advantages of high transparency and flexibility. A major drawback of using individual nanowires in nano or(More)
In this paper, we report on the synthesis and applications of semiconducting nanostructures. Nanostructures of interest were zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires and tungsten disulfide (WS<sub>2</sub>) nanotubes where transistors/phototransistors and photovoltaic (PV) energy conversion cells have been fabricated. ZnO nanowires were grown with both high- and(More)
In this paper we report the use of in-situ grown single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) from pre-patterned catalyst islands to construct nanotube electronics. The SWCNTs were grown via thermal chemical vapour deposition (CVD) on catalysts islands which were prepared by sputtering, initially, alignment marks are patterned simultaneously with the catalysts(More)
