Hybrid inorganic/polymer based photovoltaic nanodevices offer the promise of low cost large area conversion of solar energy to electricity. Nanostructures of zinc oxide have shown supreme capabilities in emerging technologies ranging from solar energy harvesting to biosensing. However, the ability to control the size and position of these nanostructures is crucial for fabricating nanodevices with remarkable properties and astonishing solar energy conversion efficiencies. Herein, we present a collection of scanning electron micrographs of zinc oxide nanostructures prepared by low temperature hydrothermal methods Image taken and Processed by Luisa Whittaker PhD.
