Zinc oxide decorated multi-walled carbon nanotubes: their bolometric properties.

We report the synthesis of MWNT/ZnO hybrid nanostructures. A simple, affordable, chemical procedure to functionalize MWNTs with ZnO nanoparticles was performed. A significant portion of the surface of MWNTs was covered with ZnO nanoparticles; these particles formed highly porous spherical nodules of 50-150 nm in diameter, sizes that are an order of… CONTINUE READING
