The surface properties of ZnO nanobelts grown by chemical vapor deposition were investigated by tapping mode atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). AFM images showed a type 1 (high aspect ratio) nanobelt lying across a type 2 (low aspect ratio) nanobelt, bending at an angle of 20.9° without breaking. Step defects were also observed on the surface for the first time, with step edges running along the [-1-120] direction. These surface defects are also observed by STM while scanning tunneling spectroscopy measurements yield a band gap of 3.3 eV and near flatband conditions.
