ZnO is a biocompatible material suitable for biosensors and microfluidic devices. Nanowires of ZnO tend to show hydrophobic nature which decelerates the adhesion/adsorption of biomolecules on the surface. This paper discusses the investigations on tuning the wettability of ZnO nanowires using UV LEDs. The spectral effect of LED emission on ZnO nanowires wettability has been studied. Results indicate that UV LEDs offer an advanced control on tuning the wettability of ZnO nanowires. The spectral investigations have provided significant insight into the role of irradiating wavelength of light on the wettability. Paper presented at 2nd International Conference on Structural Nano Composites (NANOSTRUC 2014) held 20-21 May 2014 in Madrid, Spain.
