Abstract: Several important synthetic parameters such as precursor concentration, rate of evaporation and reaction time are found to determine the growth of ZnO nanostructures. These reaction parameters can be tailored and tuned to produce a variety of nanostructures ranging from nanoparticles, nanorods and nanospheres. The nanorods are structurally uniform made up of crystallographically oriented attached nanoparticles while the nanospheres are made up of several closely packed and randomly aligned nanocrystallites. XRD spectra of both the nanoparticles and nanorods exhibit typical diffraction peaks of a well-crystalline wurtzite ZnO structure. Finally, solar cells made up of ZnO nanoparticles and nanorods electrodes with absorbed ruthenium dye (N3) were measured to have a power conversion efficiency of 0.87% and 1.32%, respectively. © IOP Publishing Ltd.
