The structure and magnetism of ZnO-based solid solutions, dilute magnetic semiconductors, with nickel solute were obtained via a solvothermal method. Compared with previous methods for solid solution DMSs, our synthesis method was really facile and economical. The one-dimensional solid solution of Zn1-xNixO nanostructures were grown in a alcoholic solution. Moreover, the percentage of doped nickel can be easily controlled. The X-ray diffraction, transmission electron micrograph and magnetization hysteresis loops of nickel-doped ZnO nanocrystals were presented to confirm that the nickel impurities are embedded inside the nanocrystal.
