Abstract: Zinc oxide (ZnO) has recently achieved special attention regarding potential electronic application due to its unique optical, electrical and chemical properties. Due to its near-UV emission and visible light transparency, ZnO is useful for the fabrication of light-emitting diodes, UV-radiation detectors, and transparent contacts in solar cells. In order to increase the carrier concentration and modify the optical properties of ZnO nanoparticles, the bentonite doping is proposed in present work. The undoped and bentonite doped ZnO nanoparticles, was successfully prepared by chemical technique. The functional group and structure was confirmed by FTIR and XRD analysis. The optical properties of ZnO and bentonite doped were analyzed by UV-Visible and Photoluminescence spectra.
