Cupric oxide-based p-type transparent conductors

This study examines the impact of doping on the resistivity of sputtered cupric oxide (CuO), and investigates the effects of co-sputtering CuO with tin dioxide (SnO2). It was found that films sputtered from a 2 at. % sodium-doped target have resistivities of four orders of magnitude lower than equiv...
