Synthesis and Characterization of Mn Doped ZnS Nanoparticles by Co-Precipitation Chemical Method

Authors(3) :-P. Rajaa, A. Joseph Lourdu Rajahb, A. Sales Amalraja

Mn doped ZnS (Zn1-xMnxS) nanoparticles with Mn concentration x = x = 2%, 4%, 6% were synthesized by the chemical co-pricipitation technique. Powder X- ray diffraction (XRD) reveals that Mn incorporates into the ZnS crystal Lattice with a cubic structure. UV–vis measurements show that ZnS nanoparticles prepared from the doping of Mn have more than 70% transmission in the wavelengths above 350 nm and an optical band gap of about 3.76 eV.
