Paper Abstract

Nickel doped SnO2 films with special optical, electrical and magnetic properties have attracted more attention for practical spintronic applications. The present work aims to obtain Ni doped SnO2 films deposited on the glass and silicon substrates by sol-gel method. The as-prepared films and thermally treated ones (at 500°C for 1h) were characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Spectroscopic Ellipsometry (SE) and UV-VIS transmittance measurements. The obtained films are amorphous according to X-ray diffraction patterns. After three layer depositions, similar film thickness were obtained (around 200 nm), on both type of substrate used. The influence of the substrates and number of depositions on the structural and optical properties of the Ni doped SnO2 films was established.
