Main Article Content


This article reports on the synthesis procedure of ZnO nanoparticles/nanofibers structure by electrospinning method using Zinc acetate and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) surfactant as reagents and evaluates their luminescent properties. The microstructure of ZnO nanoparticles/nanofibers was observed by FE-SEM. The phase formation of ZnO nanoparticles/nanofibers was studied by XRD. ZnO nanoparticles/nanofibers structure shows strong luminescence centering at 660 nm, which has potential applications in solid-state lighting.

Keywords: ZnO, nanofibers, luminescence, electrospinning, nanoparticles.
