Paper Abstract

Thermoelectric power of spray deposited transparent conducting Zinc oxide thin films has been determined from room temperature up to 200 degree(s)C with reference to pure lead, and the thickness as well as temperature dependence of its various parameters have been studied. The Fermi levels were determined using a nondegenerate semiconduction model. The carrier scattering index, the activation energy, and the temperature coefficient of activation energy have also been obtained at various thicknesses and temperatures.
