Figure 2

(a) TEM and (b, c, d, e) HRTEM images of amorphous-nanocrystalline NPles ZnO-Zn before annealing. Inset of (b) corresponds to the interlayer spacing which is about 0.285 nm, which corresponds to the interlayer distance of the (100) crystal plane of wurtzite ZnO. Inset of (c) is the corresponding FFT image from crystalline region. Inset of (d) is the corresponding FFT image from amorphous region. (e) A core-shall ZnO NPle with coating thickness of 2.5 nm; (f) SEM image of NPles ZnO-Zn annealed at 773 K in air for 1 h. (SEM image in Figure 2(f) is executed by the employee of the Latvian State University (Latvia, Riga), A. Zolotarjovs.)
