This book focuses on the various functional properties and potential applications of one-dimensional ZnO nanostructures, from basic principles to our most recent discoveries. It comprises experimental analysis of various properties of ZnO nanostructures, preparation techniques, research methods, and some promising applications. The areas of focus include ZnO-based gas/biochemical sensing devices, field emitters, solar cells, light-emitting diodes, e-papers, and single-nanowire-based transistors.


"This is a concise, well-written, and well-illustrated book on the fundamentals of and the latest development of the technological applications of ZnO nanostructures. It is based on the authors' excellent work as well as over 450 major literature references. The book is a must-read for students and researchers involved in photovoltaics, (opto)nanoelectronics, and sensing devices."

—Prof. Lionel Vayssieres - National Institute for Materials Science, Japan
