  1. 1. Growth and Characterization of ZnO Nanocrystals

    Author : Leif KE Ericsson; Kjell O Magnusson; Lars SO Johansson; Hanmin M Zhang; Omer Nour; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ZnO; Nanocrystals; Surface physics; XPS; SEM; AES; AFM; STM; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The understanding of surfaces of materials is of crucial importance to all of us. Considering nanocrystals (NCs), that have a large surface to bulk ratio, the surfaces become even more important. Therefore, it is important to understand the fundamental surface properties in order to use NCs efficiently in applications. READ MORE
