Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


ZnO nanocrystallites of average size 20nm, agglomerated into ~300nm irregular nanoparticles, were prepared by a hydrothermal method. Laser excitation yielded brilliant second-harmonic generation which was imaged with 1μm resolution, suggesting good potential for biomedical applications.
