Zinc Oxide (ZnO) has been successfully electrodeposited on a fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO) coated glass substrates using a simple aqueaus solution containing zinc nitrate hydrate by low temperature galvanostatic electrolysis. The solution temperature of zinc nitrate hydrate was varied from 60'C to 75'C in order to investigate the effect of solution temperature on electrodeposit-ZnO thin film. The properties of ZnO film were invetigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Field-Emission Scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM) and Atomic force microscopy (AFM). The solution temperature shows a significant effect on structural and morphological of deposit-ZnO. The XRD patterns exhibited the increment of (002)-ZnO peak when the solution temperature increased and the highest peak was observed at 75'C. The morphology of ZnO was changed from planar to nanopillar with the solution temperature. In conclusion, ZnO nanopillar with an excellent structural properties was obtained at solution temperature of 75'C.
