Title: Optical and electrical properties of TiOPc doped Alq{sub 3} thin films

Abstract

The Titanyl phthalocyanine (TiOPc) was doped in Tris (8-hydroxyquinolinato) aluminum (Alq3) with different concentration. The thin film of optimized doping concentration was studied extensively for optical and electrical properties. The optical properties, studied using ellipsometry, absorption and photoluminescence. The absorption peak of Alq{sub 3} and TiOPc was observed at 387 nm and 707 nm and the photo-luminescence intensity (PL) peak of doped thin film was observed at 517 nm. The DC and AC electrical properties of the thin film were studied by current density-voltage (J-V) characteristics and impedance over a frequency range of 100 Hz - 1 MHz. The electron mobility calculated from trap-free space-charge limited region (SCLC) is 0.17×10{sup −5} cm{sup 2}/Vs. The Cole-Cole plots shows that the TiOPc doped Alq{sub 3} thin film can be represented by a single parallel resistance R{sub P} and capacitance C{sub P} network with a series resistance R{sub S} (10 Ω). The value of R{sub P} and C{sub P} at zero bias was 1587 Ω and 2.568 nF respectively. The resistance R{sub P} decreases with applied bias whereas the capacitance C{sub P} remains almost constant.

  • We investigated the effect of Sn doping on the optical, electrical, and magneto transport properties of epitaxial α-Ga{sub 2}O{sub 3} thin films grown by mist-Chemical Vapour Deposition. Sn introduces a shallow donor level at ∼0.1 eV and has a high solubility allowing doping up to 10{sup 20 }cm{sup −3}. The lowest obtained resistivity of the films is 2.0 × 10{sup −1 }Ω cm. The Sn doped films with a direct band gap of 5.1 eV remain transparent in the visible and UV range. The electrical conduction mechanism and magneto-transport have been investigated for carrier concentrations below and above the insulator-metal transition. The magnetic properties of themore » neutral Sn donor and the conduction electrons have been studied by electron spin resonance spectroscopy. A spin S = 1/2 state and C{sub 3V} point symmetry of the neutral Sn donor is found to be in good agreement with the model of a simple Sn{sub Ga} center.« less
  • Thin films of Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 3}, Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 2.9}Te{sub 0.1}, Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 2.7}Te{sub 0.3} and Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 2.6}Te{sub 0.4} are prepared by compound evaporation. Micro structural, optical and electrical measurements are carried out on these films. X-ray diffraction pattern indicates that the as-prepared films are polycrystalline in nature with exact matching of standard pattern. The composition and morphology are determined using energy dispersive X-ray analysis and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The optical band gap, which is direct allowed, is 0.67 eV for Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 3} thin films and the activation energy is 53 meV. Tellurium doped thin films also showmore » strong optical absorption corresponding to a band gap of 0.70-0.78 eV. Absolute value of electrical conductivity in the case of tellurium doped thin film shows a decreasing trend with respect to parent structure.« less
  • Tin doped CuInO{sub 2} thin films deposited by rf magnetron sputtering technique show columnar structure with (006) preferred orientation. Conducting atomic force microscopy measurements show the presence of nanoconductivity regions when the current flow direction is along the in-plane InO{sub 6} layer and absence of conducting regions when the current direction is along O-Cu-O layers perpendicular to the film surface. The strong anisotropy observed in the electrical properties of tin doped samples is due to the preferred crystallite orientation and highly anisotropic delafossite structure. A large change in the electrical conductivity value and activation energy value in undoped films andmore » tin doped samples has also been explained in terms of change in crystallite orientation on doping. Spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements have been used to determine the optical constant and dielectric function of CuInO{sub 2} and CuInO{sub 2}:Sn films and show a band gap value of 4.5 eV in tin doped samples due to removal of structural defects.« less
  • Graphical abstract: The best SnO{sub 2}:N TCO film: about 80% transmittance and 9.1 × 10{sup −4} Ω cm. - Highlights: • Nitrogen-doped tin oxide film was deposited on PET by RF-magnetron sputtering. • Effects of oxygen partial pressure on the properties of thin films were investigated. • For SnO{sub 2}:N film, visible light transmittance was 80% and electrical resistivity was 9.1 × 10{sup −4} Ω cm. - Abstract: Nitrogen-doped tin oxide (SnO{sub 2}:N) thin films were deposited on flexible polyethylene terephthalate (PET) substrates at room temperature by RF-magnetron sputtering. Effects of oxygen partial pressure (0–4%) on electrical and optical propertiesmore » of thin films were investigated. Experimental results showed that SnO{sub 2}:N films were amorphous state, and O/Sn ratios of SnO{sub 2}:N films were deviated from the standard stoichiometry 2:1. Optical band gap of SnO{sub 2}:N films increased from approximately 3.10 eV to 3.42 eV as oxygen partial pressure increased from 0% to 4%. For SnO{sub 2}:N thin films deposited on PET, transmittance was about 80% in the visible light region. The best transparent conductive oxide (TCO) deposited on flexible PET substrates was SnO{sub 2}:N thin films preparing at 2% oxygen partial pressure, the transmittance was about 80% and electrical conductivity was about 9.1 × 10{sup −4} Ω cm.« less
  • The structural, compositional, and electrical properties of rf sputter- deposited Y$sub 2$O$sub 3$-doped ZrO$sub 2$ films have been investigated as a function of sputtering conditions. The results show that the application of an rf substrate bias during deposition has a large effect on both the morphological and electrical properties of the films. Auger electron spectroscopy, electron diffraction, and scanning-electron-fractography results show that films deposited at P=20 mtorr (2.67 Pa), V/subT/=-500 V, and V/subS/=-40 V are nearly stoichiometric, have a cubic crystal structure, and a relatively equiaxed microstructure. The results of electrical measurements indicate that films grown under these sputtering conditionsmore » have an ionic transference number which is nearly zero below 100$sup 0$C and rises to approximately 0.4 at 200$sup 0$C.
