Optical emissions from ZnO films were enhanced by a formation of hybrid structures with single wall carbon-nanotubes (SWCNTs). The SWCNTs were characterized by the presence of the associated fibers and islands together with many carbon nanotube structures and their average height was about < or = 40 nm from atomic force microscope and scanning electron microscope measurements. The intensities of photoluminescence on ZnO films with SWCNTs were increased up to about 30 and 60% in the region of 3.3 eV (near band edge) and 2.3 eV (deep-level) bands, respectively. It was considered that the enhancement of optical emissions from ZnO might be resulted from the effects of an excitation light scattering by SWCNTs and a surface plasmon resonance between bandgap of ZnO and SWCNTs. The surface plasmon resonance mode in the ultra-violet regions is smaller than the deep-level region relatively. This result showed that the commercial ZnO/carbon nanotubes have a feasibility of application to optoelectronic device.
