Cathodoluminescence spectroscopy is used to address the ultraviolet (UV) luminescence of a single pencil-like ZnO nanowire whose diameter gradually reduces from bottom to top in the range of 700-50 nm. It is found that the UV emission energy evidently shifts to the high energy with the ZnO nanowire's diameter decreasing and the blue-shift of 90 meV is observed when the nanowire diameter reduces to 50 from 700 nm. The physical mechanism of the UV blue-shift of the ZnO nanowire is attributed to the Burstein-Moss effect under the high carrier concentration.
