Abstract


We focus on thin films from ZnO nanorod dispersions in order to generate a high lateral order and a dense space filling structure applicable e. g. in printed optoelectronic devices. Highly stable dispersions with a solid content of up to 60 wt.\% in ethanol were prepared using trioxadecanoic acid as stabilizer. With the dispersions we prepared thin films on substrates with a 3D-smectic phase in lateral dimension of cm2 and thicknesses from below 100 nm up to 1 μm. We show how the concentration of the initial solid content is influencing the formation of domains in our films and discuss the self-assembly process into ordered structures.
