Passivation Effect on ZnO Films by SF6 Plasma Treatment
AbstractThe passivation effects of SF6 plasma on zinc oxide (ZnO) films prepared by magnetron sputtering were researched. After the SF6 plasma passivation of ZnO films, the grain size increases, there is low surface roughness, and a small amount of Zn-F bonds are formed, resulting in the narrowing of band gap. The photoluminescence (PL) intensity of SF6-passivated ZnO films has a 120% increase compared to the untreated samples, and the reduction in defects can increase the resistivity and stability of ZnO films. ZnO films are used in the preparation of ZnO/p-Si heterojunction diodes. The results of the measurement of current voltage (J–V) show that the reverse current is reduced after SF6 plasma passivation, indicating an improvement in the electrical properties of ZnO films.
