What is it about?
zinc oxide (ZnO) nano-structure semiconductors have been intensively studied for electronic and optical device applications. ZnO is a compound semiconductor, which has a high extention band gap (E= 3.37 eV) at room temperature (RT) with a Wurtzite crystal structure.
Why is it important?
In particular ZnO can be employed as the transparent conducting oxide (TCO) in solar cell applications due to its advantages of high productivity, non-toxic, low cost, and excellent electrical conductivity.
