Structural and Optical Properties of CuO Doped (Li) Thin Films Prepared by Sol-Gel Technique

Title variants
Languages of publication
CuO and (Li–doped CuO) thin films have been prepared on glass substrates by sol-gel method using spin coating technique. X-ray diffraction (XRD) results reveal that the deposited CuO and (Li– doped CuO) thin films monoclinic crystal structure and the grain size increase with increasing concentration Li. The optical transition in the CuO and (Li– doped CuO) thin films are observed to be allowed direct transition. The value of the optical energy gap decreases with increasing of (Li) for all samples.
