AbstractWe investigated the influence of the composition of the source materials on the morphology and optical properties of ZnO nanostructures. The source materials consisted of a mixture of ZnO and carbon, or ZnO, carbon, and another metal oxide (In 2O 3, MnO 2, or V 2O 5). The addition of a different metal oxide to the source materials is a commonly used method to achieve doping and/or alteration of the morphology of ZnO nanostructures. For each metal oxide additive, we investigated the influence of different forms of carbon (graphite, carbon nanofibers, and single wall carbon nanotubes). Obtained nanostructures were studied using scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, selected area electron diffraction, and photoluminescence. The morphology and the optical properties of the obtained nanostructures were strongly dependent on the source material composition. Possible reasons for observed differences are discussed.
