New Zinc Compounds Study Findings Reported from Faculty of Sciences of Sfax (Germanium-catalyzed growth of zinc oxide nanorods by thermal evaporation for enhanced photonic efficiencies)
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Faculty of Sciences of Sfax, "The diameters of the nanorods are in the range of 80-150 nm with typical length of 3 mu m. The samples are evaluated by the determination of their photonic efficiencies for degradation of methylene blue. The photonic efficiency is increased with increasing the Ge content up to 13 at.% showing maximum photonic efficiency as 2.99% and it is found to be about 2 times higher than that of undoped ZnO nanorods because Zn2GeO4 is grown and decorated ZnO nanorods and make heterojunction between Zn2GeO4 and ZnO nanorods."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This is the first report focusing on Ge-catalyzed growth of ZnO nanorods for enhanced photonic efficiencies."
