ZnO nanostructures have many applications such as use in LEDs, gas sensors and semiconducting devices. Controlling the densities, geometric attributes and batch to batch reproducibility of nanostructured ZnO can be a challenge. In this hot paper, a generic process is described, using block copolymer assisted NIL, to produce high-resolution NIL molds for the production of ZnO nanodiscs. The authors also investigate the charge storage properties of the produced ZnO nanodiscs.
