Amorphous zinc oxide (a-ZnO) thin films were synthesized from RF sputtered Zn thin films. The conversion was performed by processing Zn thin film in ultra high pure water at 95°C in various process times (120–180 min). X-ray spectra revealed the presence of amorphous ZnO in the processed films. The calculated band gap was laid in between 3.25 and 3.2 eV. Non-linear behavior in I-V characteristics was observed for all films. The structural defects of a-ZnO were confirmed with PL and Raman studies. The synthesized films at 180 min were more oxygen deficient.
