Abstract: "Sulfur-doped zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires were successfully synthesized by an electric field-assisted electrochemical deposition in porous anodized aluminum oxide template at room temperature. The structure, morphology, chemical composition and photoluminescence properties of the as-synthesized ZnO:S nanostructures were investigated. X-ray diffraction and the selected area electron diffraction results reveal that the as-ynthesized products are single phase with hexagonal wurtzite structure with a highly preferential orientation in the (101) direction. Transmission electron microscopy observations indicate that the nanowires are niform with an average diameter of 70 nm and length up to several tens of micrometers. X-ray photoelectron pectroscopy further reveals the presence of S in the ZnO nanowires. Room-temperature photoluminescences observed in the sulfur-doped ZnO nanowires which exhibits strong near-band-edge ultraviolet peaks at 378 and 392 nm and weak green emissions at 533 and 507 nm. A blue emission at 456 nm and violet emissions at around 406, 420, and 434 nm were also observed in the PL spectrum for the as-synthesized ZnO:S nanowires. The PL spectrum shows that S-doping had an obvious effect on the luminescence property of typical ZnO nanowires."
