The structural characteristics of transparent and conducting thin films of tin doped indium oxide (ITO) have been studied by X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy. The ITO films have been prepared by radio frequency sputtering employing a planar magnetron configuration. The effects of variation of substrate temperature and annealing have been studied. Films deposited at substrate temperatures up to 230° C show a marked �1 1 0� preferred orientation, whereas those deposited at 330° C are preferentially oriented in the �3 1 1� direction. Transmission electron micrographs of ITO films deposited on KCI crystals show the possible effects of strain on the structure, which are minimized to a great extent by annealing. © 1985 Chapman and Hall Ltd.
