This study presents an experimental investigation on the transport properties of ZnFe2 O4-δ (ZFO) thin films to clarify the ambient atmosphere effects on the transport properties by varying the oxygen pressure and the substrate temperature. Previous investigations have demonstrated the significant role of Fe2+ ion concentration due to oxygen vacancies on the transport properties of ZFO. Our systematic investigation suggests that the electrical transport of ZFO thin films is also strongly influenced by structural disorders and vacancies.
