How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Numerous studies on Cu-doped ZnO (CZO) thin film doped as a p-type material have been reported due to its applications in optoelectronic and gas sensing devices. The synthesis and fabrication of CZO thin films by various techniques have been reported, but the sol-gel technique for both spin and dip coating has attracted much attention due to its sa...
Nanoparticles (NPs) synthesized by the co-precipitation technique show many attractive properties such as small particle size, high crystallinity, high average pore diameter and high specific surface area. However, numerous reports show that some characteristics of the Ni-doped ZnO (NZO) NPs remain controversial such as optical bandgap (Eg), surfac...
Some efforts have been made on Cu-doped ZnO (CZO) structures to study the electronic, structural, magnetic and optical properties from first-principles calculations by different computer codes. This is very interesting to review in detail about CZO structures. A summary of the convergence criteria of geometry optimization for CZO structures from th...
Pure and copper-doped zinc oxide thin films at different contents x (Zn1-xCuxO; 0≤x ≤ 0.125) were synthesized by sol–gel spin coating process and investigated using various techniques. All samples exhibited a polycrystalline with wurtzite hexagonal phase, which wasn't altered and getting relaxed by Cu-doping. The grain size increased and changed it...
