Abstract

The doped and undoped cadmium oxide (CdO) nanoparticles were successfully synthesized using high energy ball mill method. Different percentages (5, 10 and 15) of Fe (respectively Cu) metals were added to the CdO compound, and the resulting compound was ball milled using steel balls and vials. The particle size, size distribution and microstructural evolution were characterized using of X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The particle sizes of the powders were found to be of nanometer size and were changing with doping concentration. SEM micrographs show that the powders are compact and dense. Ultraviolet visible (UV-Vis) and Photoluminescence (PL) studies are underway.
