Solution approaches to zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods is interesting because of their low growth temperatures and good potential for scale-up. Usually, the hydrothermal method involved two-steps which are seeding and dipping the conducting glass substrates in ZnO precursors. The size (diameter and length) of nanorods can be tuned by changing the dipping process parameters such as temperature, duration, precursorís concentration and pH. In this work, result showed that ZnO nanorods were successfully grow on Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) glass substrates with average diameter of 89 + 1 nm and average length of 140 + 1 nm that are going to be used in thin film solar cells.
