Abstract

Various surface structures and polarities of one-dimensional nanostructures offer additional control in synthesizing heterostructures suitable for optoelectronic and electronic applications. In this work, we report synthesis and characterization of ZnO-CdO nanorod-based heterostructures grown on a-plane sapphire. The heterojunction formed on the sidewall surface of the nanorod shows that wurtzite ZnO {1010} planes are interfaced with rocksalt CdO {100}. This is evidently different from the heterojunction formed on the nanorod top surface, where a ZnO (0001) top plane is interfaced with a CdO (111) plane. Such anisotropic heterostructures are determined by different surface structures of the nanorods and their polarities. Revelation of such anisotropic heterojunctions will provide a clue for understanding charge transport properties in electronic and optoelectronic nanodevices.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 November 2012.
All research outputs
#20,172,971
of 22,685,926 outputs
Outputs from Nanoscale Research Letters
#724
of 1,074 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#158,955
of 179,003 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nanoscale Research Letters
#17
of 92 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,685,926 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,074 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 179,003 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 92 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
