AZO COATED GLASS
AZO (Aluminum Doped Zinc Oxide) is amongst the best and most preferred transparent conductive oxide materials owing to its superior optical and electrical properties as mentioned above. Use of AZO-coated glasses is on the rise as the transparent conductive substrate is used in applications like the thin-film solar cell, OLED, electrochromic glass etc. They are used in a wide range of applications like flat panel display electrodes and gas sensors etc.
Owing to their large piezoelectric constant, these films can be used as surface acoustic wave devices and solar cells. Their optical band gap (3.3 eV) is wide which enables transmission of most of the useful solar radiation.
