Optical and Electrical Properties of SnO2:F Thin Films Obtained by R.F. Sputtering With Various Targets

Received10 Jul 1990
Accepted09 Aug 1990


Tin oxide films were deposited on glass substrates by reactive and non reactive r.f. sputtering using different types of targets corresponding to various Sn/F atomic ratio: hot pressed Sn–SnF2 or SnO2–SnF2 mixtures, ceramics obtained by casting either an aqueous SnO2–SnF2 slurry or a suspension of tin oxide in molten tin fluoride. The samples were prepared in oxygen-argon gas mixtures in which the oxygen concentration was varied from 0 mole % up to 30 mole% depending on the target. The optical and electrical properties of the obtained thin films have been studied and compared to those of the films obtained by spray technique.
