We present a density functional study of the structural behavior of zinc oxide nanostructures in basic growth condition which consequently leads to the formation of few layers of hydroxylated rocksalt structure over the wurtzite ZnO structure. We demonstrate the greater stability of the few layers of hydroxylated zinc oxide polar surface in rocksalt… CONTINUE READING
