ZnO nanodots have been successfully fabricated on a (001) Al2O3 substrate by photo-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-MOCVD) combined with near-field optical technology. The optical near-field generated from an optical fiber probe tip allowed ZnO dots to selectively grow on the irradiated substrate surface, with a size smaller than the wavelength of the light source (λ=244 nm). The crystallinity and composition of ZnO were evaluated from planar films using x-ray diffraction analysis, optical transmittance and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The planar films were grown using PE-MOCVD with a direct irradiation by an ultraviolet light source without probe tip. Above a deposition temperature of 150°C, stoichiometric ZnO films (R O:Zn=1), strongly the c-axis oriented and exhibiting a band gap of about 3.3 eV were obtained.
