    • Abstract


      Transparent films of copper yttrium oxide doped with 2% calcium have been prepared by rf magnetron sputtering. The films show a conductivity of 8 Scm-1 on intercalation of oxygen at high pressure, which reduced the transparency in the visible region. The Ca-doped CuYO2 films before oxygen intercalation show an average transmission of about 60% which reduces to about 45% upon oxygen intercalation. The temperature dependence of the conductivity indicates semiconductor behaviour with low activation energy of 0.59 eV at room temperature. The positive sign of Seebeck coefficient (+274 𝜇VK-1) confirms the 𝑝-type conductivity of the films. The optical bandgap of CuYO2 was found to be 3.15 eV.
