Well aligned ZnO nanowall arrays with submicron pitch were grown on a periodically polarity-inverted ZnO template using a carbothermal reduction process. Under the conditions of a highly dense Au catalyst for increasing nucleation sites, ZnO nanowalls with a thickness of 126 10nm, an average height of 3.4νm, and a length of about 10mm were formed on the template. The nanowalls were only grown on a Zn-polar surface due to a different growth mode with an O-polar surface. The results of x-ray diffraction and photoluminescence (PL) measurements revealed a single crystalline, vertical alignment on the template, and a large surface to volume ratio of the ZnO nanowalls.
