In this paper, we present X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Raman scattering data for undoped and Mn-doped ZnO nanoparticles synthesized by microwave irradiation. X-ray diffractograms of all these samples have been indexed based on the hexagonal wurtzite structure and lattice parameters calculated have a good resemblance to reported values. It is found that with Mn doping in ZnO, a slight increase in the lattice parameter is observed. XPS spectra for the ZnO and Mn-doped ZnO nanoparticles show peaks for Zn 2p, Zn 3d, O 1s, and Mn 2p. The Raman peaks at 331, 387, 437, 540, 577, and 668 cm–1 are assigned to \( E_2^{high }-E_2^{low } \), A1(TO), \( E_2^{high } \), 2LA, A1(LO), and A1(LO) + \( E_2^{low } \) respectively for the ZnO and Mn doped ZnO samples.
