Cover: Properties of Semiconductors

ZnO nanorods grown on conducting glass (upper left) can serve as an experimental introduction to crystal orientation (background scanning electron microscopy image and upper-right powder X-ray diffraction scan) and to semiconductor properties. When light excites electrons into the conduction band, changes occur: the change in photoelectrochemical current in the presence of UV light is shown center right; the large difference in resistance of the sample with and without illumination is shown lower right; the band edge in the absorption spectrum is shown center left; and the decolorization of methylene blue is shown lower left. For further details see the laboratory experiment, , by Emma Koenig, Ari Jacobs, and George Lisensky.
