Growth mechanism and characterization of zinc oxide hexagonal columns

Abstract

Single crystalline, hexagonal ZnO columns were grown from Zn vapor in air plasma. The columns grow via repeated nucleation and epitaxial growth of nanoscopic pyramids on the c-face of the host column. Homoepitaxial nucleation of pyramids was attributed to the existence of an Ehrlich-Schwoebel barrier on the (0001) surface.
