Abstract

The work function of an Al-doped ZnO (AZO) thin film can be increased via B + ion implantation from 3.92 eV up to 4.22 eV. The ion implantation has been carried out with the ion dose of 1 × 10 16 cm -2 and ion energy of 5 keV. The resistance of the B + implanted AZO films has been a bit raised, while their transmittance is slightly lowered, compared to those of un-implanted AZO films. These behaviors can be explained by the doping profile and the resultant band diagram. It is concluded that the coupling between the B + ions and oxygen vacancies would be the main reason for an increase in the work function and a change in the other properties. We also address that the work function is more effectively alterable if the defect density of the top transparent conducting oxide layer can be controlled.
