Abstract

This work reports on the growth of ZnO nanorods by simple thermal oxidation under air at 500°C of Zn and/or Zn-Zn3N2 precursors thin films. These films were deposited by reactive magnetron sputtering in argon atmosphere for Zn films and in a mixture of Ar - N2 for Zn-Zn 3N2. X- Rays diffraction (XRD) patterns of the precursors films showed the formation of both Zn and Zn3N2 phases before oxidation. However, after oxidation, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) analysis revealed the disappearance of Zn3N2 phase. This method allowed us to prepare high-density ZnO nanorods by oxidizing ZnZn3N2 precursor films. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) investigations revealed that the films prepared from Zn-Zn 3N2 showed higher density of nanorods and stronger photoluminescence with several mode phonon replicas at room temperature.
