Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Optical absorption spectra of ZnO and sodium doped ZnO nanoparticles. The band around 368 nm is due to exciton absorption in ZnO nanoparticles. Inset shows the variation in exciton peak maximum with Na concentration.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of the prepared samples. Morphology of the particles changes from deformed spherical to flowerlike, with increase in Na concentration.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

PL spectra of the prepared samples at an excitation wavelength of 330 nm. The band at 377 nm is from exciton recombination, and the broad band at 548 nm is due to deep level trap emission. The variation with Na concentration of (a) band edge exciton peak wavelength and (b) oxygen vacancy peak intensity are shown in the corresponding insets.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Normalized transmittance of sample ZnNa10 as a function of input laser fluence. Filled circles are experimental data points while solid curves are numerical fits for a two-photon induced excited state absorption process, as given by Eqs. (1) and (2).
