The dielectric properties of nanostructured wurtzite-type ZnO are studied by analyzing the low-loss region of the electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) in a transmission electron microscope. Characteristic peaks at about 12 and 32 eV in the imaginary part of the dielectric function shift to lower energies as particle size decreases. A comparison of… CONTINUE READING
