Résumé

ABSTRACT


Indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films have been prepared by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis technique using different Sn concentrations on a glass substrate at 400°C. X-ray diffraction patterns reveal that all films have polycrystalline cubic structure with preferentially oriented along (400) plane. The films high optical transmittance is improved from 70 % to 80 % in visible region and optical band gap is increased from 3.69 to 3.84 eV with increasing tin concentration. The electrical measurements were performed using four probes technique. The maximum value of conductivity is 813 (Ω.cm)-1was measured in 8% Sn doped film.
