Co 3 O 4 -based spinels are a new class of wide-band-gap p-type conductive oxides with high work functions. We examined the structures, conductivities, work functions, and optical spectra of quaternary Zn–Ni–Co–O thin films across the entire spinel region of the ZnO–NiO–Co 3 O 4 diagram using a high-throughput combinatorial approach. We found that the conductivity of as-deposited films is maximized (100 S/cm) and optical absorption (at 1.8 eV) is minimized in different regions of the diagram… CONTINUE READING
