Abstract [en]

The transition pressure (Pt) of the B4-to-B1 phase transformation of zinc oxide nanoparticle (n-ZnO) structures was investigated in terms of their size and morphology. Nanorods, nanopencils, nanopyramids, nanowires, and nanotubes of the B4 phase in various sizes were directly built up by accounting for the atomic basis of the core and surface regions. The previously proposed transformation path was performed for constructing shapes and sizes compatible with B1 phases. Using systematic density functional theory, the surfaces were cleaved from the optimized crystal structures at different pressures in both the B4 and B1 phases. A method for calculating the surface energy at different pressures is proposed using an asymmetric slab model. Using the proposed model, the transition pressure of n-ZnO structures was found to significantly depend on their morphology and size, which is in good agreement with the available experimental reports.
