Abstract

For structural investigation, highly (112) oriented tetragonal Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin films on hexagonal sapphire (0001) single crystal substrates were obtained by radio frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering. The influences of the deposition parameters, such as substrate temperature (Tsub) and working Ar pressure (PAr) on the chemical composition and structural properties of as deposited CZTS films were investigated. The film sputtered at 500°C has the only orientation of (112), also, it bears the best structural quality with pure CZTS phase and an estimated band gap of 1.51eV.
