Effect of Manganese Contain on the Optical Properties of CuO Thin Films

Removed due to plagiarism

Full Text PDF


Copper oxide prepared with various contains of Manganese by chemical spray pyrolysis. Some optical properties are studied from recording the absorption spectra via UV-Visible spectrophotometer in the range of 460-900 nm. The absorbance increased with increasing Mn-contain in the CuO thin films, and the absorption coefficient. Extinction coefficient and refractive index are decreased with increasing Mn-contain in the CuO thin films, also the energy gap shifted from 2 eV to 1.91 eV after 4%Mn additive.
