Title variants
Languages of publication
Zinc oxide, cadimium oxide and their composites were synthesized in this research using sol-gel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction, to investigate their optical properties using UV-visible, photoluminenscence (PL) spectroscopy, which showed red shift behavior in the ZnO manner enhanced by addition of CdO which noticed through calculations of energy gap.
