Radial ZnO-core/ZnS-shell nanostructures were deposited at atmospheric pressure by atomic layer deposition (ALD) using diethylzinc (DEZn), nitrous oxide (N2O) and ditert-butylsulfide (DTBS) precursors. The structural and optical properties of radial ZnO-core/ZnS-shell nanostructures were characterized using θ-2θX-ray diffraction (XRD), high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL).

Both ZnO-core and ZnS-shell of the ALD-deposited radial ZnO-core/ZnS-shell nanostructure were found wurtzite in nature based upon the results of HRTEM investigations. Moire fringes were identified in the radial ZnO-core/ZnS-shell nanowire structure with an observed period being in good agreement with the lattice mismatch between ZnO-core and ZnS-shell of the pseudomorphic ZnO-core/ZnS-shell nanostructure.

Strong neutral donor excitonic emissions (DoX) along with related longitudinal optical phonon (LO) replicas of ZnO cores were observed in the 10K PL of the ALD-deposited radial ZnO-core/ZnS-shell nanostructures. It appears that the ALD-deposited radial ZnO-core/ZnS-shell nanostructures exhibit high structural and optical quality.
