Title: Microstructural and optical studies on sonochemically synthesized Cu doped ZnO nanoparticles

Copper doped ZnO nanoparticles were synthesized by sonochemical method varying the concentration of the impurity. Systematic investigations like X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were carried out to understand the microstructural properties. The average particle sizes and all the crystallographic parameters were calculated from XRD results. This shows the formation of wurtzite phase of ZnO with average size of the particles as 53 nm and an increase of particle size with dopant concentration was also been observed. UV absorption and Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) spectra revealed the absorption at wavelength < 370 nm with a remarkable red shift of absorption band and a linear decrease of transmittance with increase in doping concentrations respectively.
