Emission-wavelength-tuning of dyes Rhodamine-B(RhB) and Curcumin incorporated electrospun polymethylmethacrylate(PMMA) microfibers was done. Such multi-component polymer matrix can be used for emission-wavelength-tuning in tunable dye lasers. These fibers were characterized by spectroscopic and electron microscopic techniques. © OSA 2016.

The structural and optical properties of nanomaterials exhibit severe changes when capped with organic polymers. In this work we focus on the effect of chitosan capping on ZnO:Na nanoparticles synthesized by wet chemical method. The main characteristics analyzed are x-ray diffraction (XRD), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and photoluminescence (PL). Hexagonal crystal formation of nanoparticles was confirmed from the XRD and the lattice strain was estimated from the Williamson Hall (WH) plot. Various bonds present in the synthesized sample were analyzed using FTIR. Capping results in the reduction in grain size thereby enhancement in the PL intensity. The yellow emission is in well agreement with the Commission International d'Eclairage (CIE) diagram. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

The structural, morphological, optical and electrical properties of α-axis oriented nanostructured ZnS thin film prepared by dip coating have been studied in this article. The X-ray diffraction studies of the film shows that the ZnS was crystallized with cubic structure of particle size 27 nm with a strong orientation along (200) plane which is advantageous for optoelectronic devices. The scanning electron microscopy and TEM micrograph reveals that the film consists of nano crystalline columnar particles. From the investigation of the absorption spectra of this ZnS film, the band-gap is found to be higher (4 eV) than bulk (3.7 eV) indicating a blue shift. It is found that the film is having a transparency of >90 % in the visible-near IR region from 400 to 800 nm. From the photoconductivity measurements, it is evident that the film is photosensitive in nature. From the electrical resistivity measurements the conductivity of the film was found to be 3.4 × 10-2 Ω-1 cm-1. Hot probe method indicates that the synthesized ZnS film is n-type. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

This paper presents the synthesis of potassium (K) doped zinc oxide nano sheets at room temperature by wet chemical method. The structure and morphology of the crystals prepared for different molar concentrations of K were analysed by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Lattice strain and grain size were calculated from the Williamson-Hall (WH) Plot and Debye-Scherrer's formula for different concentrations of potassium. Absorption studies reveal that absorption is minimum in the visible region and band gap energy is found to decrease with increase in K concentration. The photoluminescence (PL) spectra were used to study the luminescence behavior and the nature of defects in the samples and the overall emission is white for all the samples except the one prepared with 1.2 M potassium doping. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures find applications in optoelectronic devices, photo voltaic displays and sensors. In this work zinc oxide nanostructures in different forms like nanorods, tripods and tetrapods have been synthesized by thermal evaporation of zinc metal and subsequent deposition on a glass substrate by vapor transport in the presence of oxygen. It is a comparatively simpler and environment friendly technique for the preparation of thin films. The structure, morphology and optical properties of the synthesized nanostructured thin film were characterized in detail by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and photoluminescence (PL). The film exhibited bluish white emission with Commission International d'Eclairage (CIE) coordinates x = 0.22, y = 0.31. © 2015 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
