Optical Properties of ZnO Thin Film

Open access

Abstract

In this work, we studied with a Matlab program, some of optical properties of zinc oxide (ZnO) deposited on glass (SiO2). The parameters studied include the refraction index, extinction coefficient, optical band gap, and complex dielectric constant versus incident photon energy, and transmittance, absorbance and reflectance spectrum of ZnO thin film deposited on glass (SiO2) for different thickness. The films were found to exhibit high transmittance (75- 95%), low absorbance and low reflectance in the visible / near infrared region up to 1000 nm. However, the absorbance of the films was found to be high in the ultra violet region with peak around 380 nm.
