The aim of our work is the description of the morphology of Al - doped zinc oxide obtained by the hydrothermal and vapour condensation methods as well as changes in its alttice cosntant with Al ions addition. The shape and grain size were analysed by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-ray Diffraction (XRD). The helium pycnometer method was applied for density measurement. The dependence of density and lattice parameters on Al concentration is presented.
