Data from China University of Science and Technology Provide New Insights into Nanorods

June 9, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Business Journal -- Research findings on Nanorods are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Anhui, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "A new green method to synthesize SnSe nanorods had been carried out, with adopting SnCl2 center dot 2H(2)O and SeO2 as precursors."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the China University of Science and Technology, "The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and UV-vis absorption spectroscopy. The results revealed that the SnSe nanorods have an average length of 250 am and width of 14 nm, with preferred growth direction of [010]."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Optical measurements showed a direct band gap of 1.4 eV for nanorods, which is favorable for application in solar cells."
