Significant enhancement of yellow–green light emission of ZnO nanorod arrays using Ag island films

Abstract

Surface plasmon (SP) mediated emission from ZnO nanorod arrays (NRAs)/Ag/Si structures has been investigated. The ratio of visible emission to UV emission can be increased by over 30 times via coupling with SP without deterioration of the crystal quality. The fact that the effect of SP crucially depends on the size of Ag island films provides the feasibility to significantly enhance the yellow–green emission of the ZnO nanostructures without sacrificing the crystallinity of ZnO.
