Abstract

The microstructure of Fe2O3 sol-gel thin films, obtained from Fe(OCH2CH3)3, was investigated by x-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Raman spectroscopy. Samples were nanocrystalline from 400 °C to 1000 °C, and the crystallized phase was haematite. In the coatings, the α–Fe2O3 clusters were dispersed as single particles in a network of amorphous ferric oxide.
