Abstract

Bundled wurtzite zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires were fabricated in a facile manner on an ITO-conducting substrate via a microemulsion route without using any hard template or external electric/magnetic field. Structure and properties of the as-prepared ZnO electrode were investigated using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, photoluminescence, Raman spectroscopy, as well as electrochemical tests. The ZnO electrode shows excellent optical and electrocatalytic ability, which may find further applications such as optoelectronics or as sensors as well as other modern industrial areas.
