Preparation and characterization of Mn and (Mn, Cu) co-doped ZnO nanostructures.


We report on the ferromagnetic characteristics of Zn(1-x)Mn(x)O nanorods synthesized by a seed-mediated solution method. The as-doped ZnO nanorods had a length about 200 nm and a diameter ranging from 20 to 30 nm. Magnetic property measurements revealed that the Zn(1-x)Mn(x)O nanorods exhibited weak ferromagnetism at 305 K. Similar solution method were also… (More)
