Optical Dispersion Characterization of Sprayed Zn1-xMnxO Thin Films

Full Text PDF


Uniform and adherent Zn1-xMnxO films have been deposited by using spray pyrolysis technique on glass substrates. The optical properties and dispersion parameters of zinc oxide have been studied as a function of doping concentration with Mn. Changes in direct optical energy band gap of cobalt oxide films were confirmed after doping, the optical energy gap Eg increased from 3.13 eV for the undoped ZnO to 3.39 eV with increasing the doping concentration of Mn to 4%. The changes in dispersion parameters and Urbach tails were investigated. An increase in the doping concentration causes a decrease in the average oscillator strength. The single-oscillator parameter has been reported.
