Preparation of zinc containing materials

Author affiliations


There has been an immense recent interest in zinc oxide and chalcogenide materials because of their potential use in many devices. The synthesis and characterisation of ZnE (E = O, S, Se and Te) thin films or types of quantum dots has as a consequence become topical. A close interplay between the development of new or improved synthetic methods and the resulting material properties has evolved.
