Aluminum doped ZnO (AZO) thin films have been prepared by spin coating route on glass substrate. The structural, optical and electrical thin films have been characterized in different post-heat temperatures between 450 and 600o C. Xray diffraction analysis has revealed hexagonal wurtzite structure with (002) preferred orientation which increased in crystallite size by increasing post-heat temperature. The optical spectra of the films showed the transmittance higher than 90% within the visible wavelength region. Our results show that optical gap and surface resistance of the films are decreased by increasing post-heat temperature.
Keywords: Sol-gel method, optical spectra, post-heat temperature, spin coating.
