Pinto, Joana V.
MetadataShow full item record
The approach for selective growth of 1D nanostructured oxide materials using poly (dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) stamp consists of using microcontact printing, as such the soft lithography technique, for transferring the pattern of ZnO film on a substrate, followed by the hydrothermal growth of 1D nanowires on patterned areas. The nanowires have been grown in aqueous solutions of zinc nitrate at temperature at 95°C. The wettability of the glass and of the Si/SiO2 substrates was investigated by contact angle measurements. The morphology of the nanostructures obtained was characterized by optical microscopy and scanning electron micoscopy.
