Abstract

Undoped and doped ZnO thin films were prepared by sol–gel method and deposited on tin-doped indium oxides (ITO) substrate using spin coating technique. The effects of Sn and Sb dopants on structural and optical properties were investigated. The starting material was zinc acetate dihydrate, 2-methoxyethanol was used as solvent and monoethanolamine (MEA) as stabilizer. ZnO films were doped with 2% and 7% Sn and Sb concentrations. Optical measurements show an important effect of Sn and Sb dopants on optical band gap.
