Fabrication and Characterization of UV-Emitting Defect Free Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles

This thesis details the synthesis and characterization of UV-emitting defect-free zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles. The synthesis of the colloidal nanoparticles was performed in an aqueous solution by adding sodium hydroxide to zinc sulfate at 60°C. The most effective procedure for eliminating the def...
