Growth of tungsten oxide nanostructures by chemical solution deposition
Tungsten oxide nanostructures were fabricated on LaAlO3 (00l) substrates by a simple chemical solution deposition. The decomposition behavior and phase formation of ammonium tungstate precursor were characterized by thermal analysis and X-ray diffraction. Moreover, the morphology and chemical state of nanostructures were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectra. The effects of crystallization temperature on the formation of nanodots and nanowires were investigated. The results indicated that the change of nanostructures had close relationship with the crystallization temperature during the chemical solution deposition process. Under higher crystallization temperature, the square-like dots transformed into the dome-like nanodots and nanowires. Moreover high density well-ordered nanodots could be obtained on the substrate with the further increase of crystallization temperature. It also suggested that this simple chemical solution process could be used to adjust the nanostructures of tungsten oxide compounds on substrate. (C) 2018 Elsevier B. V. All rights reserved.
