Zinc oxide nanowires have been mostly observed due to special material properties and showing special performance in photonic, electronics and optics. Aligned Zinc oxide nanowires were grown on FTO substrate by using the hydrothermal process. This growth technique is bottom up, low cost and easy. The seed layer is deposited onto the substrate by spin coating with low temperature and nanowires are affected by the thickness of seed layer. Afterwards, the nanowires were growing hydrothermally onto those seed layers. Different characterizations have been done in detail using X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Raman spectroscopy and photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL). The SEM is used to relives the presence of nanowire with hexagonal shape in vertical direction. The XRD measurements show diffraction pattern of wurtzite structure.
