Effects of Cu-Doping on Optical Properties of NiO

Full Text PDF


This work presents the effect of Cu-doping on some optical properties of Cu:NiO thin film prepared by spray pyrolysis technique. UV-Visible spectrophotometer in the range 380-900 nm used to determine the absorbance spectra for various Cu-doping of Cu:NiO thin film. The transmittance and energy gap are decreased with increasing Cu-doping in the prepared films, while absorption coefficient, extinction coefficient, and skin depth are increased with increasing Cu-doping.
