Structural, morphological, optical and electrical properties of spray deposited zinc doped copper oxide thin films

Structural, morphological, optical and electrical properties of spray deposited zinc doped copper... Nanostructured spray deposited zinc (Zn) doped copper oxide (CuO) thin films were characterized by employing X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and ultraviolet–visible–near infrared (UV–Vis–NIR) spectroscopy. XRD patterns of CuO and Zn doped CuO thin films indicated monoclinic structure with the preferred orientation along $$\left( {\bar 111} \right)$$ 1 ¯ 11 plane. Maximum value of crystallite size is found about 28.24 nm for 5 at% Zn doped CuO thin film. In FESEM images, nanoparticles were observed around the nucleation center. EDX analysis confirms the presence of all component elements in CuO and Zn doped CuO thin films. Analysis by AFM of CuO and Zn doped CuO thin films figured out decrease of surface roughness due to Zn doping. UV–Vis–NIR spectroscopy showed that CuO and Zn doped CuO thin films are highly transparent in the NIR region. Optical band gap of CuO thin films decreased with substrate temperature and that of Zn doped CuO thin films increased with Zn concentration. Refractive index of CuO and Zn doped CuO thin films raised with photon wavelength and became constant in the NIR region. 5 at% Zn doped CuO thin film showed the highest optical conductivity and the lowest electrical resistivity at room temperature. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Electronics Springer Journals
