Abstract

M (M=Co, Mn, Fe) doped ZnO nanophases (0D-NANOS and 1D-NANOS) have been prepared by vaporisation-condensation in a solar reactor (helionanos formed by solar PVD) from targets of known initial composition.
The heliophases and initial powders have been characterized by X-Ray Diffraction analysis (XRD) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM).
A detailed analysis of the XRD spectrum has been performed to estimate :
1 - diffraction peaks position shifts and shape anomalies
2 - the average size of coherency domains (nanophases average grain size)
The first point led to discuss eventual variations of the lattice parameter as a function of composition, presence of stresses and distribution of grain sizes.
The second point led to discuss the influence of parameters such as the initial composition and the pressure inside the reactor during the solar PVD process.
Magnetic properties of 0D-NANOS-Zn1-xCoxO have been studied : these nanomaterials exhibit an original behaviour which will be discussed.
