Photoluminescence spectroscopy is used to study defects found in single ZnO nano/microwires at 90 K. The defect, acting as binding site for bound exciton (BX) transition, is represented by B F , the fractional intensity of the BX peak in the whole near-band edge ultraviolet (UV) luminescence. The concentration of defects as origins of the visible emissions is proportional to the intensity fraction D F , i.e., the intensity fraction of visible emissions in the sum total of all UV and visible luminescences. By comparing B F and D F , it is concluded that the two defects are not correlated to each other. The former kind of defect is considered to be related to the blueshift of the near-band edge peak as the radius of the nano/microwires decreases at room temperature.
