We report on the transport properties of single ZnO nanowires measured as a function of the length/square of radius ratio via transmission line method. The specific contact resistance of the FIB Pt contacts to the ZnO nanowires is determined as low as 1.1x10-5 Ωcm2. The resistivity of the ZnO nanowires is measured to be 2.2x10-2 Ωcm. ZnO nanowire-based UV photodetectors contacted by the FIB-Pt with the photoconductive gain as high as ∼108 have been fabricated and characterized.
