The use of cationic surfactants to control the structure of zinc oxide films prepared by chemical vapour deposition

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper describes a powerful and versatile new method for controlling the structure of zinc oxide thin films prepared by aerosol assisted chemical vapour deposition, based on the use of a common surfactant. The technique combines the benefits of solution and vapour based methods and leads to high quality morphologically-defined and orientated thin films.
