ZnO thin films with thikness d = 100 nm were deposited onto different substrates such as glass, kapton, and silicon by radio frequency magnetron sputtering. The structural analyses of the films indicate they are polycrystalline and have a wurtzite (hexagonal) structure.
The ZnO layer deposited on kapton substrate shows a stronger orientation of the crystallites with (0 0 2) plane parallel to the substrate surface, as compared with the other two samples of ZnO deposited on glass and silicon, respectively.
All three layers have nanometer-scale values for roughness, namely 1.7 nm for ZnO/glass, 2.4 nm for ZnO/silicon, and 6.8 nm for ZnO/kapton. The higher value for the ZnO layer deposited on kapton substrate makes this sample suitable for solar cells applications. Transmission spectra of these thin films are strongly influenced by deposition conditions. With our deposition conditions the transparent conducting ZnO layer has a good transmission (78–88%) in VIS and NIR domains. The values of the energy gap calculated from the absorption spectra are 3.23 eV for ZnO sample deposited onto glass substrate and 3.30 eV for the ZnO sample deposited onto kapton polymer foil substrate. The influence of deposition arrangement and oxidation conditions on the structural, morphological, and optical properties of the ZnO films is discussed in the present paper.
