Equilibrium thermodynamics of nonstoichiometry in ZnO and aluminium doping of ZnO using aluminium chloride

  • 253 Accesses

  • 11 Citations

Abstract

A critical assessment of nonstoichiometry that can occur in zinc oxide at various temperatures and oxygen pressures has been made using the concepts of equilibrium thermodynamics. The feasibility of producing transparent conducting films of aluminium-doped zinc oxide by spray pyrolysis of organo-zinc salt solution containing aluminium chloride is also discussed.
