Scientific Image - Zinc Oxide Nanowires

Linked product
Description: 

This is a scanning electron microscope image of vertical arrays of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires on a sapphire substrate.

Zinc oxide (ZnO) is an ideal material for nanoscale optoelectronics, electronics, and biotechnology applications. Numerous ZnO-based devices have already been developed, including nanowire field effect transistors, piezoelectric nanogenerators, optically pumped nanolasers, and biosensors.

• SIZE: The sample displayed in the image is about 10 µm wide.

• IMAGING TOOL: Scanning electron microscope
