Abstract

This research project proposes to develop a new dimension in the relationship between the morphology and physical properties and possible applications related to the different morphologies of nanostructured CuAlO2 phase. We expect through this study clearly describe the process of formation of different morphologies of nanostructured CuAlO2 phase and thus provide the basic knowledge on methods to control the morphology of these nanostructures. Since the control over the morphology was reached, different physical properties depending on the morphology may be analyzed and thus verify its application in the detection of different types of toxic gases. Finally, we believe that the transparent CuAlO2 nanostructured semiconductor material could be considered a promising material with great potential for applications in many fields of high technological.
