Vertically well-aligned ZnO nanowire ultraviolet (UV) photodetectors were fabricated by spin-on-glass technology on ZnO:Ga/glass templates. With 2 V applied bias, it was found that dark current density of the fabricated device was only 2.0× 10-7 A cm2. It was also found that UV-to-visible rejection ratio and quantum efficiency of the fabricated ZnO nanowire photodetectors were more than 1000 and 12.6%, respectively.
