Abstract

Fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) films have been deposited by pulsed DC magnetron sputtering with an Sn target. Various ratios of CF 4 / O 2 gas were injected to enhance the optical and electrical properties of the films. The extinction coefficient was lower than 1.5 × 10 3 in the range from 400 to 800 nm when the CF 4 / O 2 ratio was 0.375. The resistivity of fluorine-doped SnO 2 films ( 1.63 × 10 3 Ω cm ) deposited at 300 ° C was 27.9 times smaller than that of undoped SnO 2 ( 4.55 × 10 2 Ω cm ). Finally, an FTO film was consecutively deposited for protecting the oxidation of indium tin oxide films. The resistivity of the double-layered film was 2.68 × 10 4 Ω cm , which increased by less than 39% at a 450 ° C annealing temperature for 1 h in air.
