Paper Abstract

Transparent ZnO films having more than 1 micrometers in thickness were prepared by one dipping-pyrolysis process. The starting solution, produced by dissolving zinc 2- ethylhexanoate, dehydrated caster oil fatty acid and dimethyl silicone oil as a leveling agent into an organic solvent, was coated on the plate glass and cured at 200 degree(s)C and heated up to 500 degree(s)C. The thick ZnO films covered with SiO2 films are very useful for UV cut-offs at about 380 nm and for high transparency in the visible region. The ZnO films with the durable films have a possible application to automobile windows and the like. Characterizations are also reported by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), optical spectroscopy and Taber abrasion test.
