Using gravure- and/or inkjet-printing techniques to realize uniform ZnO nanoparticles-based seed layers

Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires (NWs) are excellent candidates for the fabrication of energy harvesters, mechanical sensors, piezotronic and piezo-phototronic devices thanks to the interplay between piezoelectric and semiconducting properties. The growth of ZnO NWs on flexible substrates would further broaden their possible applications. However, such a growth requires low temperature synthesis to prevent any damage…
