Abstract

The aim of the research was to determine the impact of developers, removers and solvents on the stability of ZnO nanofibers. Surface imaging of nanofiber morphology was studied using Scanning Electron Microscope. From the obtained results a set of factors which have the least influence on the etching of ZnO nanofibers during device processing was selected. The dependence of the grains size on the fibers robustness in the liquid solutions was investigated. It was found that the nanofibers calcinated at higher temperatures were more stable. This was due to the grain size of the fiber as the fibers calcinated at higher temperatures revealed larger grain size. The studies have shown that smaller grains were dissolved much faster, leaving the porous core of the ZnO nanofiber.
