An experimental study to determine the effect of Cu doping on structural properties of ZnO nanoparticle has been conducted. Zn1-xCuxO (CZO) were prepared by co-precipitation method by varying Cu concentration with x = 0.00, 0.10, 0.11 and 0.12. The structural properties of the CZO sample were characterized by X-Ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS), which consist of XANES (X-ray Absorption Near-Edge Spectroscopy) and EXAFS (Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure). XAS measurements were performed in the energy of Cu K-edge and Zn K-edge using synchrotron radiation at SLRI (Synchrotron Light Research Institute) in Thailand. Both Cu K-edge and Zn K-edge XANES spectra indicate that the oxidation states of Cu and Zn ions are 2+. Analysis of XRD data with refinement method using Rietica software confirms the presence of Cu as doping in ZnO host lattice with the crystallite size ranging between 26 and 44 nm. Moreover, it shows that the obtained CZO samples are polycrystalline with (002) predominant reflection and exhibit a hexagonal wurtzite structure.
