      Amorphous thin films of Sb-Se are prepared using the three-temperature method. The films are prepared with atomic compositions from 5–90 at.% Sb. The electrical resistivity, Hall voltage and thermoelectric power of annealed samples have been measured in the temperature range 25 to 250°C. On heat treatment the sharp fall of resistance of the annealed films is attributed to radical structural transformation from amorphous to crystalline. Electrical resistivity, Hall constant and thermoelectric power are found to vary with thickness and composition of the film.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Thin films of Al-Sb of varying compositions and thickness have been formed on glass substrates employing three-temperature method. Electrical resistivity (ρ) and activation energy (ΔE) have been studied as a function of composition, thickness (d) and temperature of the film. Films of Al-Sb system with aluminium < 50 at.%, ∼ 50 at.% and > 50 at.% exhibit metallic, semiconducting and metallic to semiconducting behaviours respectively. Activation energy (ΔE) of semiconducting films found to vary inversely with thickness, is attributed to combined effects of change in barrier height due to the size of grains and stoichiometry in the films.
