    Abstract

    It is difficult to produce a good film consisted of nanocrystals which are in self-assembled nanostructures. So far, a lot of methods and especially expensive vacuum-based methods have been used to produce such films. In this paper, sol gel and spin coating method were introduced. The combination of these simple and cheaper methods was used because of the high potential of those methods to produce good quality nanocrystals. First, nanocrystals were produced by sol gel method and later spin coating was done to control the thickness of the nanocrystals film. During the spin coating process, a metal tape was used to avoid solution from splashing out from the glass substrate. Subsequently, nanocrystals film was heated up from room temperature to 400 °C. In this paper, the nanostructural of nanocrystals thin film was discussed. To study the alignment of nanocrystals, Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FE-SEM) was used. Through this analysis, we found that the nanocrystals was in spherical pattern and the alignment of this film was well arrayed. Here, the combination of the two cheaper and simpler methods can be used to produce good self-assembled nanocrystals thin film and at the same time can save our research cost.
