Summary of "Controlling the growth of single crystal ZnO nanowires by tuning the atomic layer deposition parameters of the ZnO seed layer."

Semiconducting nanowires (NWs) offer exciting prospects for a wide range of technological applications. The translation of NW science into technology requires reliable high-quality large volume production. This study provides an in-depth investigation of the parameters using an atomic layer deposition (ALD) system to grow zinc oxide (ZnO) seed layers followed by the chemical bath deposition of ZnO nanowires (NWs) to demonstrate the low-cost production of uniform single crystal wurtzite phase ZnO NWs that is scalable to large area substrates. The seed layer texture and the morphology of the NWs grown were systematically investigated using atomic force microscopy (AFM) as a function of the seed layer deposition parameters. It is shown that the NWs growth orientation can be controlled by tuning the seed layer deposition parameters while maintaining the same chemical bath deposition conditions. Likewise, the diameters and the surface densities of the NWs varied from 23 to 56 nm and 40 to 327 NWs/µm2, respectively. Significantly, the relationship between the seed layer structure and the NW density indicates a clear correlation between the density of seed layer surface features and the resulting surface NW density of nanowires grown.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Synthetic material used for the treatment of burns and other conditions involving large-scale loss of skin. It often consists of an outer (epidermal) layer of silicone and an inner (dermal) layer of collagen and chondroitin 6-sulfate. The dermal layer elicits new growth and vascular invasion and the outer layer is later removed and replaced by a graft.

Any of the hormones produced naturally in plants and active in controlling growth and other functions. There are three primary classes: auxins, cytokinins, and gibberellins.

The external, nonvascular layer of the skin. It is made up, from within outward, of five layers of EPITHELIUM: (1) basal layer (stratum basale epidermidis); (2) spinous layer (stratum spinosum epidermidis); (3) granular layer (stratum granulosum epidermidis); (4) clear layer (stratum lucidum epidermidis); and (5) horny layer (stratum corneum epidermidis).

A member of the alkali metals. It has an atomic symbol Cs, atomic number 50, and atomic weight 132.91. Cesium has many industrial applications, including the construction of atomic clocks based on its atomic vibrational frequency.

A central nervous system stimulant and sympathomimetic with actions and uses similar to DEXTROAMPHETAMINE. The smokable form is a drug of abuse and is referred to as crank, crystal, crystal meth, ice, and speed.
