A series of Co-doped ZnO films were fabricated by a spray pyrolysis method. The X-ray diffraction patterns of the films showed that the undoped and Co-doped ZnO films exhibit wurtzite crystal structure. Surface morphology of the films obtained by scanning electron microscopy reveals that pure ZnO film has the hexagonal shaped microrods. The introduction of Co content in the structure did not affect the surface morphology of the films significantly. Magnetic hysteresis loops were observed at room temperature, indicating that ferromagnetism can be realized with Co doping into ZnO. The values of remnant magnetization and coercive field slightly decreased when the concentration of Co was increased beyond 1 at.%. The calculated band gap value of undoped and 1 at.% Co doped samples was found to be around 3.08 eV. The band gap energy increases upon 3 at.% Co concentration followed by a decrease for further increase in Co concentration toward 5 at.%. Published by Elsevier B.V.

Structural, optical and electrical properties of N-doped ZnO thin films prepared by thermal oxidation of pulsed filtered cathodic vacuum arc deposited ZnxNy films
ERDOĞAN, NECDET HAKAN; Kara, K.; Ozdamar, H.; KAVAK, HAMİDE; ESEN, RAMAZAN; Karaagac, H. (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-08)
In this study, N-doped ZnO thin films were fabricated by oxidation of ZnxNy films. The ZnxNy thin films were deposited on glass substrates by pulsed filtered cathodic vacuum arc deposition (PFCVAD) using metallic zinc wire (99.999%) as a cathode target in pure nitrogen plasma. The influence of oxidation temperature, on the electrical, structural and optical properties of N-doped ZnO films was investigated. P-type conduction was achieved for the N-doped ZnO obtained at 450 degrees C by oxidation of ZnxNy, wi...
Structural and optical properties of thermally annealed thallium indium disulfide thin films
Guler, I; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2020-06-30)
Structural and optical properties of thallium indium disulfide (TlInS2) thin films, deposited by thermal evaporation technique and thermally annealed at different temperatures, were analyzed. Crystallite size, dislocation density and lattice strain of the thin films were found from X-ray diffraction experiments. The atomic compositions of the films were determined from energy dispersive spectroscopy analysis. Surface morphology of the films was analyzed using atomic force microscopy. From room temperature t...
Indium tin oxide thin films elaborated by sol-gel routes: The effect of oxalic acid addition on optoelectronic properties
Kesim, Mehmet Tumerkan; Durucan, Caner (Elsevier BV, 2013-10-31)
Single layer indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films were deposited on glass using modified sol-gel formulations. The coating sols were prepared using indium (InCl3 center dot 4H(2)O) and tin salts (SnCl4 center dot 5H(2)O). The stable sols were obtained using ethanol (C2H5OH) and acetylacetone (C5H8O2) as solvents and by the addition of oxalic acid dihydrate (C2H2O4 center dot 2H(2)O) in different amounts. The effect of oxalic acid content in the sol formulation and post-coating calcination treatment (in air at ...
Temperature-dependent material characterization of CuZnSe2 thin films

In the present work, CuZnSe2 (CZSe) thin films were co-deposited by magnetron sputtering of ZnSe and Cu targets. The structural analyses resulted in the stoichiometric elemental composition and polycrystalline nature without secondary phase contribution in the film structure. Optical and electrical properties of CZSe thin films were investigated using temperature-dependent optical transmission and electrical conductivity measurements. The band gap energy values were obtained using transmittance spectra unde...
Structural, optical and magnetic properties of Cr doped ZnO microrods prepared by spray pyrolysis method
YILMAZ, ŞERİFE; Parlak, Mehmet; ÖZCAN, ŞADAN; Altunbas, M.; McGlynn, E.; BACAKSIZ, EMİN (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
A series of Cr-doped ZnO micro-rod arrays were fabricated by a spray pyrolysis method. X-ray diffraction patterns of the samples showed that the undoped and Cr-doped ZnO microrods exhibit hexagonal crystal structure. Surface morphology analysis of the samples has revealed that pure ZnO sample has a hexagonal microrod morphology. From X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy studies, the Cr 2p3/2 binding energy is found to be 577.3 eV indicating that the electron binding energy of the Cr in ZnO is almost the same as...
