I am developing a nano composite composed of ZnO nano wires and PVDF. ZnO nano wires have a direct band gap at 3.37 eV and thermally stable exciton binding energy about 60 meV. PVDF has the highest piezoelectric coefficient than any other polymer. Together ZnO and PVDF nano composite has potential for photonics devices, energy harvesters, capacitive energy storage, etc.
