In this work we evaluate structural and optical properties of ZnO nanoparticles grown by wet chemistry method. Light emission properties of these nanoparticles are studied with cathodoluminescence and micro-photoluminescence. Even at the room temperature excitonic emission is well resolved, due to high exciton binding energy of ZnO. Decay kinetics of photoluminescence emissions and efficiency of inter-nanoparticles energy migration is evaluated from maps of in-plane variations of photoluminescence decay times measured in microphotoluminescence setup.
