Comparing ITO, FTO and AZO Films as Transparent Conductive Oxides (TCOs)

Posted by MSE Supplies Admin on

Transparent conductive oxides (TCO) are doped metal oxides used in optoelectronic devices such as flat panel displays, photovoltaics (including inorganic solar cells, organic solar cells, and dye-sensitized solar cells), and as thin film electrodes in sensors.  Sputtering-coated ITO (indium tin oxide), FTO (fluorine doped tin oxide) or AZO (aluminum-doped zinc oxide) films on glass or other substrates are typical transparent conductive oxides (TCO) substrates with ITO being the most commonly used.  ITO coated glass can only be heated to 350 deg. Celsius, while FTO coated glass can be exposed to up to 600 deg. Celsius. High quality NSG TEC7, TEC8 and TEC15 FTO glass substrates are available at...
