Abstract

A cylinder-plug device capable of holding a sample and rotating at 2000 turns per second in a stable fashion was designed and constructed. It reproduces the working principle of a commercial spin-coating system to grow films. The device was successfully used in the activation by nucleation centers of ZnO on glass for the hydrothermal obtainment of ZnO nanorods, of potential use in nanostructured solar cells.
