Title: Nanoscale lamellar photoconductor hybrids and methods of making same

Abstract

An article of manufacture and methods of making same. In one embodiment, the article of manufacture has a plurality of zinc oxide layers substantially in parallel, wherein each zinc oxide layer has a thickness d.sub.1, and a plurality of organic molecule layers substantially in parallel, wherein each organic molecule layer has a thickness d.sub.2 and a plurality of molecules with a functional group that is bindable to zinc ions, wherein for every pair of neighboring zinc oxide layers, one of the plurality of organic molecule layers is positioned in between the pair of neighboring zinc oxide layers to allow the functional groups of the plurality of organic molecules to bind to zinc ions in the neighboring zinc oxide layers to form a lamellar hybrid structure with a geometric periodicity d.sub.1+d.sub.2, and wherein d.sub.1 and d.sub.2 satisfy the relationship of d.sub.1.ltoreq.d.sub.2.ltoreq.3d.sub.1.
