  Zinc oxide nanorod arrays (ZnO NRs) were grown on the ZnO seed layers via an aqueous solution using hydrothermal method and their photovoltaic properties were investigated. It was found that the growth period of 20 minutes is the optimum condition for ZnO nanorods growth, the cell containing these nanorods ...  Read More
