Abstract

We report here the synthesis of silicon doped zinc oxide (2 wt.% SiO2-ZnO) thin films by Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) with comparable electrical and optical properties to Indium Tin Oxide (ITO). ZnO is a candidate for electrode in flat panel displays including organic light-emitting diodes and windows in solar cells due to its combined properties. Unlike the more commonly used ITO, ZnO is non-toxic, inexpensive and abundant. The optimised film, deposited at 300˚C and an oxygen pressure of 5 mTorr, had a resistivity of 4.6 ×10-4 Ωcm and a transmittance of 92%.
