Abstract

The single-crystalline of tin oxide (SnO $$_2$$ 2 ) nanowires (NWs) have been synthesized successfully via chemical vapour deposition and structurally characterized by using x-ray powder diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. The optical absorption of the SnO $$_2$$ 2 NWs were measured by spectrophotometer. Here, we also have performed first principles calculations based on density functional theory to investigate the band structure and dielectric function of this SnO $$_2$$ 2 NWs to expose the luminescence mechanism. It is observed that the bandgap energy of the SnO $$_2$$ 2 NWs to be 3.68 eV, exhibiting a 80 meV blue shift from that of the bulk SnO $$_2$$ 2 . In a subsequent ab initio electronic structure calculation, the effects of defects (e.g., O and Sn vacancies) on the nature and origin of absorption are investigated for the single-crystalline system. Electronic structure calculations suggest electronic doping to be more effective to stabilize the absorption and the dielectric function results are consistent with the experimental phenomenon.
