We report optical and structural properties of ZnO films deposited by pulsed laser deposition technique on (100) n-type silicon and quartz substrates at various pressures of back ground gas. ZnO plasma was created using KrF laser (248 nm) at various pressures of the ambient gas, oxygen. Laser induced plasma at varying fluence on the target was investigated using optical emission spectroscopy and 2-D images of the expanding plumes. X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, and spectro-photometry were used to characterize as grown films.
