Abstract Zinc oxide (ZnO) and aluminium (Al) doped zinc oxide nanopowders were prepared using sol-gel method. The structural properties were studied using X-ray diffraction technique (XRD). It is observed that doping of aluminium significantly reduces the crystallite size and also affects the intensity ratio of crystal planes. The powders with wurtzite structured hexagonal phase are also characterized using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). From the… CONTINUE READING
