ZnO and ZnO:Mn nanocrystals synthesized via reverse micelle method. The size, band gap, Urbach energy, optical constants and penetration depth of nanocrystals were calculated by UV-vis spectroscopy data. The surface morphology was studied with the use of scanning electron microscope (SEM). Moreover the samples exposed to Gama ray source of 60Co and their thermoluminescence properties were also investigated.
