Large-scale Ni-doped ZnO nanowire (NW) arrays are grown. The electrical conductivity of a single Ni-doped ZnO NW has been increased for 30 times. The photoluminescence (PL) spectrum of the doped ZnO NWs has a red shift, suggesting possible doping induced band edge bending. The doped NW arrays could be the basis for building integrated nanoscale transistors, sensors, and photodetectors.
