Abstract

Spray pyrolysis process has been used to deposit highly transparent and conducting films of tin-doped indium oxide onto glass substrates. The electrical, structural and optical properties have been investigated as a function of various deposition parameters namely dopant concentrations, temperature and nature of substrate. The morphology of the surface as a function of the substrate temperature has been studied using atomic force microscopy. XRD has shown that deposited films are polycrystalline without second phases and have a preferred orientation (400). Indium tin oxide layers with low resistivity values around 4 × 10-5 Ω cm and transmission coefficients in the visible and near-infrared range of about 85-90% have been easily obtained.
