Abstract: The paper reports comparative studies on synthesized aluminium nitride nanotubes, nanoparticles and commercially available micron-sized AlN powder using different spectroscopic techniques: cathodoluminescence measurements (CL), X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES) and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Crucial distinctions in CL spectra are observed for nano- and microsized aluminium nitride powders; systematic shift of the IR absorption maximum has been detected for nanostructured aluminium nitride as compared to commercial samples. Through XANES experiments on Al K-edge structural differences between nano- and bulk AlN are revealed, intensity of features in absorption spectra has been found to be a function of wurtzite and zincblend phases amount in nanostructured samples.
