Deposition of SnO2 Film Using Sol–Gel Spin Coating Method
Among various semiconductor metal oxide materials the transparent conducting tin dioxide (SnO2) attracts tremendous attention due to its unique properties and applications in flat panel displays, dye sensitized solar cell, Li ion batteries and gas sensors. In this study SnO2 film was deposited by using sol–gel spin coating method. The structural and morphological properties of SnO2 film were studied using X-ray diffraction, Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis and Atomic Force Microscopy techniques. X-ray diffraction studies confirmed that the prepared SnO2 film belongs to tetragonal system. Field Emission Scanning Electron microscopic images showed a uniform coating of SnO2 on the glass substrates and the results of Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis revealed the presence of Sn and O in the prepared film. Atomic Force Microscopy images showed that the surface of the coated SnO2 film contains layered structure.
