Saydam İletken Oksit (TCO) ince filmlerin teknolojide kullanımı son yıllarda artmıştır. Bu malzemeler aynı anda iyi bir elektrik iletkenliğine ve görünür ışık geçirgenliğine sahiptir. TCO'lar, ince film dönüştürücüler (TFT'ler), iletken elektrotlar, kapasitörler, sensörler, elektrokimyasal cihazlar gibi birçok teknoloji uygulamasında kullanılmaktadırlar. İndiyum kalay oksit (ITO) bu malzemeler arasında en yaygın kullanılan malzeme olmasına rağmen, daha iyi elektriksel özelliklere (elektron hareketliliği µFE>10 cm2 /V.s) cm2 / Vs) sahip olan N tipi indiyum-galyum-çinko oksit (IGZO) üzerinde yapılan çalışmalar günümüzde önem kazanmıştır. Bu çalışmada, cam alttaş üzerinde termal buharlaştırma sistemi kullanılarak yüksek vakum altında oda sıcaklığında çok homojen bir amorf yapıya sahip IGZO ince filmler üretilmiştir. Üretilen IGZO ince filmlerin yapısal karakterizasyonu ise Atomik kuvvet mikroskobu ve taramalı elektron mikroskobu kullanılarak  çeşitli kalınlık ve tavlama sıcaklıkları için gerçekleştirilmiştir. Geçirgenlik ve kalınlık ölçümleri ise optik özelliklerin araştırılması için sırasıyla UV-VIS spektroskopisi ve profilometre kullanılarak yapılmıştır. Tavlama sıcaklığı arttıkça tanecik boyutunun büyüdüğü ve tane sınırlarının azaldığı görülmektedir. Bu durum, pürüzlülüğün azalmasına ve optik geçirgenliğin ve enerji boşluğunun (Eg) artmasına neden olmaktadır.

The use of Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO) thin films in technology has increased in the last decades. These materials have good electrical conductivity visible light transmittance simultaneously. TCOs have many technology applications such as thin film transducers (TFTs), conductive electrodes, capacitors, sensors, electrochemical devices. Although indium tin oxide (ITO) is the most widely used material among these materials, studies on N-type indium-gallium-zinc oxide (IGZO) that better electrical properties (electron mobility µFE>10 cm2 /V.s) cm2 / Vs) have increased in recent years. In this study, IGZO thin films are produced which have a very homogeneous amorphous structure at room temperature under high vacuum by using thermal evaporation system on glass substrates. Structural characterization was carried out by scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, on IGZO thin films for various thickness and annealing temperatures. Transmittance and thickness measurements were performed using UV-VIS spectroscopy and profilometer for the investigation of optical properties, respectively. It is seen that grain size grows and grain boundaries decreases when annealing temperature is increased. This results in reduced roughness and increased optical transmittance and energy gap (Eg).
