Paper Abstract

Tin oxide (TO) films were coated by spray-deposition technique using monobutyl tin trichloride (MBTC) and dibutyl tin diacetate (DBDA) solutions. Spectrophotometric transmittance characteristics of samples deposited on Corning 7059 glass were used to evaluate refractive index, and extinction coefficient spectra, n -λ and k-λ respectively of TO films. Samples exhibit a V-shaped absorption spectrum with a minimum of ≈/LieV. Absorption minima of TO films were found to be thickness and starting solution dependent. MBTC-TO films exhibit lower absorption than DBDA-TO films with higher absorption for thicker films. Bond properties and structural investigations of spray-deposited TO films were also studied.
