Indium tin oxide (ITO) is optically transparent semiconductor that finds extensive applications in liquid crystal displays, photovoltaic cells, touch screen displays, electrochromic smart windows and more. As with all such electrode materials, there is a compromise between conductivity and optical properties. Different substrate materials and underlying layers are playing important role in transparency (better contrast and less absorption, increased brightness), surface morphology (smoothness, homogeneously) and conductivity of the ITO films. We compared optical, electrical and morphology properties of ITO films onto polymer substrate, obtained from company "SIDRABE Inc." (Latvia) and ITO films onto glass substrate obtained by us.
