ZnO nanostructures attract current interest because they have the potential to implement cavity quantum electrodynamics at room temperature. We report a photoluminescence mapping of ZnO nanobelts both at room temperature and 4.2 K. The multicavity modes were observed all over the belt surface, which were induced by Fabry–Pérot interference. The emission from the belt surface is enhanced at both the ends and the sides of the belt, and is highly linearly polarized in the direction perpendicular to the long axis of the belt. The results are explained using finite-difference time-domain simulations.
