Abstract
Ag-decorated ZnO nanorods were synthesized by thermal evaporation of a mixture of ZnO and graphite powders at 900 C followed by wet Ag coating and thermal annealing. The ZnO nanorods had a rod-like morphology with a relatively uniform width and length. The widths and lengths of the nanorods ranged from 50 to 300 nm and up to a few hundred micrometers, respectively. The diameters of the Ag particles on the nanorods ranged from 10 to 100 nm. The dependence of the photoluminescence properties of Ag-decorated ZnO nanorods on the postannealing atmosphere was examined. Annealing resulted in an increase and decrease in the near band edge (NBE) and deep level (DL) emission intensities of Ag-coated ZnO nanorods, respectively, whereas both the NBE and DL emission intensities of uncoated ZnO nanorods were increased by annealing. The intensity ratio of NBE emission to DL emission of the Ag-coated ZnO nanorods was increased *15-fold by hydrogen annealing. The underlying mechanism for NBE emission enhancement and DL emission suppression of Ag-coated ZnO nanorods by postannealing is discussed based on the surface plasmon resonance effect of Ag.
