Magnesium-Doped Zinc Oxide Electrochemically Grown on Fluorine-Doped Tin Oxide Substrate
Abstract:Nanostructures of magnesium (Mg) doped Zinc oxide (ZnO) were successfully deposited on conductingfluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) coated glass plates by cathodic electrochemical depositionmethod at different potentials and temperature conditions. The deposited samples were characterizedby XRD and SEM techniques to confirm their structures, morphologies and optical properties.These measurements show that Mg doped ZnO has a wurtzite structure and that the strongestintensity of the (002) peak is found at 60 °C and −1.0 V. Tunable transmittance of Mg doped ZnOhas a band gap energy from 3.45 eV to 3.82 eV, which is the direct evidence of doping.
