We report on experimental results of non-resonant two-photon absorption-induced photoluminescence in ZnO nanostructures, which may act as a possible route to excite ZnO nanostructure based lasers. Epitaxial ZnO nanorod-like nanostructure was grown on pre-seeded Si (100) substrates by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method with a mixed ZnO/C solid source. Crystalline ZnO seeds were prepared and controlled by the rapid thermal annealing (RTA) treatment of e-beam deposited amorphous ZnO thin films with various thicknesses.
