Erratum to: Variation in luminescence and bandgap of Zn-doped SnO2 nanoparticles with thermal... To plot the curve, the data were processed in the origin software, in which Eq. (1) might be displayed as, Zn doped tin oxide (SnO :Zn) nanoparticles have been 2 synthesized by the chemical precipitation route with dif- col(E)=(1 − col(D)) ∕(2 ∗ col(D)) (2) ferent thermal decomposition temperatures having emis- sion intensities in visible light and widened bandgap. Band gap variation and visible light emission intensities can be controlled by doping and calcination.
