Tunable synthesis of ordered zinc oxide nanoflower-like arrays.


A novel approach to fabricate an ordered array of ZnO nanoflowers, consisting of uniform polymer cores of 100s of nanometer diameter decorated with ZnO nanorods of 10s of nanometer diameter, is presented. The 2-stage method combines the formation of ZnO seed layer by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) onto a colloidally assembled polystyrene sphere monolayer and… (More)
