Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanocolumns have been prepared by a metal-organic chemical vapor deposition technique, and structural and optical characterization reveal that the nanocolumns have high crystalline and luminescent qualities. Au/MgO/ZnO/In structured Schottky diodes have been fabricated from the nanocolumns. An intense emission can be detected from the diodes under the drive of bias voltage, and the output power can reach 3.7 μW. The intense emission comes from both the high crystalline and luminescent qualities of the ZnO nanocolumns, and the ideal Schottky contact formed in the Au/MgO/ZnO/In structures.
