Tin Dioxide Nanostructure Using Rapid Thermal Oxidation Method and Hydrothermal Synthesis of CuO-SnO2-ZnO Nano Composite Oxides
Tin dioxide (SnO2) nanostructured thin films on quartz substrates were prepared by rapid thermal oxidation technique for different oxidation temperatures and oxidation times. X-ray diffraction analysis indicates that the films are polycrystalline, having tetragonal structure. All the films shown most preferred orientation along (101) plane parallel to the substrates. The nanostructure parameters such as grain size, microstrain and dislocation density were calculated. The grain size of prepared SnO2 nanostructure films is small and is within the range of 44 to 56 nm. The nanocomposite oxides (CuO-SnO2-ZnO) prepared to use hydrothermal method consist of small nanorod distributed on the surface that shows nanostructure properties
