Paper Abstract

This work investigates the physical properties of the MgxZn1-xO films. MgxZn1-xO films were deposited by RF magnetron sputtering system using a 6 inch ZnO/MgO (80/20 wt%) target. The XPS, Hall measurement, and transparent performance are measured. The XPS results show that there is high Carbon element content on the surface of MgxZn1-xO maybe due to the contamination and the average of the Mg content is about 25 at. %. The XRD results indicate that the appearance of only (111) peaks for as-grown MgxZn1-xO film is a sign of the cubic single phase. In this study, the MgxZn1-xO film show high transparency with transmittances over 90 % in the visible region (400 ~ 700nm) and the sharp absorption edge is visible in UV region due to the Mg content. Therefore, the Hall measurement of MgxZn1-xO films which were deposited at lower RF power show the higher doping concentration, the lower resistivity and higher mobility as a function of the annealing temperatures. The experimental results indicate that MgxZn1-xO film with 800 °C annealing contains more oxygen vacancies which play the role of donor. Since oxygen vacancies generate states in the band gap and cause an increase in conductivity.
