Abstract

Cadmium-doped Ge oxide and Zn oxide thin films were deposited by RF magnetron sputtering. The electrical and optical properties of these films were investigated. All deposited films except for highly Cd-doped Ge oxide were transparent to visible light. Hydrogen introduction reduced the resistivity of the films, although the optical transmittance for visible light did not change significantly. The enhancement of conductivity could be attributed to the increase in carder density by the hydrogen introduction.
