Zinc Oxide whether in the form of nanorods, bulk melt, or other forms have been the subject of study across many areas of study especially for its n-type semi-conductor properties. The research into its usefulness as a scintillation detector is limited and is far from optimized. The subject of this project is to provide a broad baseline into this field for research to be conducted to further its ability as a radiation detector.
