    In this paper, we report the synthesis of ZnO nanorods on in-situ grown ZnSe grains by using the simple chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method and elementary sources of Zn and Se. To our best knowledge, there is no report of growing other Zn-based nanostructures on in-situ synthesized ZnSe. The ZnO-ZnSe system has the advantage of carrier transfer between the two binary II-VI semiconductors with different energy levels for device applications [1], which cannot be achieved in the single-compound semiconductor nanostructures.
