Zinc oxide is a wide band gap material with excellent semiconducting, photonic and piezoelectric properties. In the past ten years zinc oxide nano-structures such as nanowires and nano-rods have received great interest due to their unique dimensional and material properties in the area of photonics, electronics, mechanics, energy recovery, etc. In this poster we report the manufacturing process of a new shape, i.e. hollow hexagonal ZnO nano-cones. We grew them on different kinds of substrate using a low pressure,
