Nanocrystalline porous ZnO films have been synthesized by thermal oxidation of amorphous zinc deposits with an anomalously developed surface, which were previously formed using magnetron sputtering. The microstructure, morphology, phase composition, and optical properties of the synthesized oxide films have been studied by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and spectrophotometry. Applicability of the two-stage technique to fabrication of porous ZnO films for UV detectors is demonstrated.



This study was carried out in the framework of state task no. АААА-А17-117021310364-1 and supported in part by the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations(contract no. 007-ГЗ/Ч3363/26). The equipment of the Analytical Center of Collective Use of the Dagestan Scientific Center, Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Center of Collective Use “Structural Diagnostics of Materials” of the Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography, Russian Academy of Sciences, was used.
