Abstract

Exposing ZnO nanoparticles to atomic and molecular hydrogen at room temperature decreases the transmission coefficient, which demonstrates that diffusion of hydrogen atoms to subsurface and bulk ZnO sites already occurs at these fairly low temperatures (see figure). The interstitial hydrogen atoms act as n-type shallow donors, which increase the density of electrons in the conduction band.
