Morphology Evolution of ZnO Thin Films Deposited by Nitrogen Mediated Crystallization Method

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

We study the surface morphology of ZnO thin films deposited by nitrogen mediated crystallization method utilizing atomic force microscopy as a function of nitrogen flow rates. Initially, the surface morphology of ZnO thin film deposited without nitrogen exhibits a bumpy surface with spiky grains where the skewness and kurtosis values were found to be 0.48 and 4.80, respectively. By addition of small amount of nitrogen, the skewness and kurtosis values of the films significantly decrease associated with a flatter topography. Further increase in nitrogen flow rate to 16 sccm has roughened the surface shown mainly by the increase in kurtosis value to be 3.30. These results indicate that the addition of small amount of nitrogen during deposition process has enhanced the adatoms migration on the surface resulting in a superior film with a larger grain size. Two-dimensional power spectral density analysis reveals that all the films have self-affine fractal geometry with total fractal values in the range of 2.14 to above 3.00.
