Morphology Impact on the Absorption Behaviour of Post-Thermally Treated Tris(8-Hydroxyquinoline) Gallium Films

Full Text PDF


This work reports on the impact of surface morphology on the optical absorption of vacuum deposited tris (8-hydroxyquinoline) gallium (Gaq3) films. Morphological investigation was performed for films treated under nitrogen gas in the temperature range from 85 °C to 255 °C. The results of field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and x-ray diffraction (XRD) technique ascertained the formation of amorphous nanostructures. Considerable modification in the absorption behaviour of Gaq3 films was observed upon morphological changes. The results of these modifications were ascribed to the impact of morphological variations among the surface of Gaq3 films.
