About the Journal :
Experimental and Theoretical NANOTECHNOLOGY (ETN) abbreviated as Exp. Theo. NANOTECHNOLOGY is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed and open access journal. It includes specialized research papers, short communications, reviews and selected conference papers in special issues on the characterization, synthesis, processing, structure and properties of different principles and applications of nanotechnology with focus on advantageous achievements and applications for the specialists in engineering, chemistry, physics, materials science and medicine. ETN covers and publishes all aspects of fundamental and applied researches of experimental and theoretical nanoscale technology dealing with materials synthesis, processing, nanofabrication, nanoprobes, spectroscopy, properties, biological systems, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nano-optics, nano-mechanics, nanodevices, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, nanotoxicology within the scope of the journal. ETN aims to acquire the recent and outstanding researches for the benefit of the human being.
Wurtzite (w) and zincblende (zb) InN films have been grown on (011) SrTiO3 (STO) substrates by metal- organic chemical vapor deposition, the epitaxial relation- ships and optical properties are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), absorption and photoluminescence (PL). Based on XRD θ –2θ and Φ scanning results, the epi- taxial relationships between (w- and zb-) InN films and STO substrates are determined, that is, (0001)w-InN(011)STO and (100)zb-InN //(011)STO. Compared with the w-InN films, the zb-InN films exhibit a red shift in absorption edge and PL spectra, and a much nar- rower and stronger PL spectrum, implying a better optical quality of zb-InN films. The structure transition is supposed to be due to the difference in atom and bond areal density between the crystal plane of wInN(0001) and zb-InN(100). Keywords: InN; Nanostructure; Phase tranition.
