Abstract :
Highly conductive SnO2 thin films were grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) in a wide growth temperature range (50 °C–250 °C), using a tetrakis-dimethyl-amine tin (TDMASn) precursor and an ozone reactant. The ozone SnO2 ALD thin films showed excellent electrical properties (5.63 × 10− 4 Ω cm) over 200 °C, but the electrical properties of the films were not measured at low growth temperature (under 125 °C). In order to verify the origin of the electrical properties as a function of growth temperature, the growth behavior and chemical bonding states, film crystallinity, surface roughness, and optical properties were examined. The ALD ozone SnO2 thin films deposited above the 200 °C growth temperature had high carrier concentration (3.2 × 1020–1.2 × 1021) and Hall mobility (~ 32 cm2 V/s). Also, films deposited at 250 °C exhibited a polycrystalline structure and high transmittance (over 80% at 550 nm wavelength). As a transparent conductive oxide material, the film properties of ALD ozone SnO2 thin films are very suitable due to their excellent high conductivity and reasonable transmittance.
