It is a great challenge to directly assemble two-dimensional (2D) graphene oxide (GO) sheets into 1D fibers without any polymer or surfactant for their promising multifunctional applications. Herein, a facile self-assembly strategy is proposed to fabricate neat GO fibers from cost-efficient, aqueous GO suspension at a liquid/air interface based on the(More)
A facile hydrothermal strategy to synthesize sulfur-doped reduced graphene oxide (S-RGO) sheets with good conductivity is proposed by using only graphene oxide (GO) sheets and sodium sulphide (Na2S) as precursors through a hydrothermal reaction process at 200 °C in one pot. The introduced Na2S can act as not only a sulfur dopant, but also as a highly(More)
In this paper, ZnO microdisks with sputtering of Au nanoparticles were prepared to explore their plasmon/exciton coupling effect. An obvious blue shift and enhanced excitonic emission intensity were observed in the PL spectra of as-grown and Au-sputtered ZnO samples at room temperature. The investigation on the absorption spectra and temperature-dependent(More)
The response of graphene surface plasmon (SP) in the ultraviolet (UV) region and the realization of short-wavelength semiconductor lasers not only are two hot research areas of great academic and practical significance, but also are two important issues lacked of good understanding. In this work, a hybrid Fabry-Perot (F-P) microcavity, comprising of(More)
Effective and bright light-emitting-diodes (LEDs) have attracted broad interests in fundamental research and industrial application, especially on short wavelength LEDs. In this paper, a well aligned ZnO nanorod arrays grown on the p-GaN substrate to form a heterostructured light-emitting diode and Al nanoparticles (NPs) were decorated to improve the(More)
A rectifying hybrid junction was fabricated by the self-assembly of 4-aminothiophenol (PATP) on well-aligned ZnO microrod arrays. Good rectification behavior was obtained from the device of Al/ZnO/PATP/Al. The electron transport at the ZnO/PATP interface was investigated systematically by experimental observation and theoretical simulation. X-ray(More)
In this paper, a complex of Zn-containing hydroxy double salt (Zn-HDS) supported gold nanoclusters (AuNCs) has been synthesized. The formation of the complex (denoted as the AuNCs/Zn-HDS complex) has been analyzed by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), IR spectroscopy and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). It is noteworthy that the AuNCs/Zn-HDS(More)
Single-mode ultraviolet (UV) laser of ZnO is still in challenge so far, although it has been paid great attention along the past decades. In this work, single-mode lasing resonance was realized in a submicron-sized ZnO rod based on serially varying the dimension of the whispering-gallery mode (WGM) cavities. The lasing performance, such as the lasing(More)
A facile, and cost-efficient ultrasonication-assisted exfoliation strategy is proposed to fabricate GO sheets with various sizes. Just by controlling the original GO sizes as basic building blocks in deionized water, various aligned architectures, such as films, microfibers, submicron rods, and nanorods, are self-assembled at the water/air interface.
