Abstract
We investigated transparent conducting aluminium-doped zinc oxide thin films fabricated by atomic layer deposition (ALD). For the thermal ALD, diethylzinc and trimethylaluminium were used as the Zn and Al precursors, respectively. The electrical, structural and optical properties were systematically investigated as functions of the Al doping contents and deposition temperature. The best resistivity and transmittance (4.2 m Omega cm and similar to 85%) were observed at an Al doping concentration of about 2.5 at% at 250 degrees C. An increase in the carrier concentration was observed with increasing deposition temperature and doping concentration. This can be explained by the effective field model of layered structures. Also, the enhancement of the mobility with increasing doping concentration was studied by the grain-boundary scattering and percolative conduction mechanism. By correlating the electrical and structural properties, it was found that varying the carrier concentration was more effective in changing the mobility than the grain-boundary scattering, due to the hopping conduction.
