restricts the maximum applicable temperature to <250 °C. This is another reason, why the usual Indium tin oxide (ITO) transparent conductive oxide (TCO) electrode is replaced by doped ZnO. This layer is preferably deposited by PVD methods, RF or reactive
ZnO added to the system Portland cement — water changes the kinetics of the hydration process substantially. Amorphous zinc hydroxide is formed and inhibits the reaction of tricalcium silicate with water, resulting in an induction period prolongation. This effect depends on the amount of ZnO added to the hydrated paste. The transformation of zinc hydroxide into calcium hydrozincate provokes the further hydration.

Phase equilibria in subsolidus area in the ZnO-V2O5-Fe2O3 system have been investigated over the whole concentration range of the oxides. The components of this system form two compounds:
Zn2FeV3O11 and Zn3Fe4(VO4)6. A solidus area projection onto the component concentration triangle plane of the ZnO-V2O5-Fe2O3 system has been constructed using DTA and XRD methods. 11 subsidiary subsystems can be distinguished in this system. Melting
temperatures of mixtures of solid phases coexisting at equilibrium in each of subsidiary subsystems were determined.
Quantum dots of II–VI semiconductors are direct-bandgap materials and allow manipulation of properties by controlling the stoichiometry. ZnO is n-type semiconductor having wide and direct band gap of 3.37 eV with a
