Abstract

In this study, p type NiO thin films were produced using the thermal evaporation method that least affects the physical properties of the target sample. The nano powdered nickel (II) oxide was thermally evaporated onto the microscope glass cleaned by conventional method. Optical transmittance values of the NiO thin films were determined by a UV-Visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometer. The optical band gaps of non-annealed and annealed NiO thin films were determined as 3.54 and 3.48 eV, respectively. XRD, SEM, AFM, EDX and XPS measurements were also performed to examine the effect of annealing in NiO thin films.
