Paper Abstract

The transport and annealing properties of phosphorus-doped (Zn,Mg)O thin films grown via pulsed laser deposition (PLD) are studied. The electron carrier concentration for (Zn,Mg)O:P films decreases with increasing deposition and Ar annealing temperature. All the films exhibit good crystallinity with c-axis orientation. This result indicates the importance of activation of the P dopant in (Zn,Mg)O:P films. The as-deposited ZnO:P film properties show less dependence on the deposition growth temperatures. The resistivity of the (Zn,Mg)O:P films is significantly higher than the ZnO:P films grown under similar conditions, indicating separation of the conduction band edge relative to the defect donor state. The annealed ZnO:P films are n-type with resistivity dependent on annealing temperature.
