AbstractHydrothermal treatment of ZnO nanostructures involves low temperatures (150-200 °C) and elevated water vapor pressure for the purpose of the improvement in the material properties. Under such moderate conditions, no significant changes in the morphology would be expected. Nevertheless, such treatment results in a significant change of nanostructured morphologies of ZnO. The observed changes are dependent on the starting material properties and the substrate used for the growth. In the case of Si substrate, hydrothermal treatment results in significant Si contamination of the samples. In terms of the optical properties, improvements are observed only in some cases, while samples with excellent starting optical properties are degraded by the treatment. Mechanisms responsible for the observed changes are discussed. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
