ZnO is an emerging nanoscale material due to its exciting optoelectronic and piezoelectric properties. In Chapter 7, ZnO is discussed in detail. The growth of nanoscale ZnO films is presented, along with the resulting optoelectronic properties of these materials. The principles of piezoelectricity are introduced, along with ZnO-based generation of electricity through force.
