The synthesis of hexagonal ring-shaped structures of zinc oxide using nanosphere lithography and metal/metal oxide sputtering is demonstrated. This synthesis exploits the surface re-emission of zinc oxide to deposit material in regions lying out of the line-of-sight of the sputtering source. These rings can nucleate the hydrothermal growth of zinc oxide crystals. Control over the growth could be exercised by varying growth solution concentration or temperature or by applying an external potential. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
