ZnO films were prepared on silica glass substrates by the use of an R. F. activated reactive evaporation (ARE) method, and were examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron micrograph. XRD indicated that they were c-axis oriented and that an R. F. plasma of Zn and O was necessary for the film deposition. The optimum conditions for a dense film with a fine texture of the surface and having good crystallinity were as follows ; R. F. power : 150~200W, the substrate temperature : 400°C, the oxygen pressure : 2.0 ×10-4Torr, the evaporation rate : 5.0 Å/s. The standard devitation σ of the X-ray rocking curve of (002) for the film was 1.9°, smaller than that of the film prepared by using an R. F. sputtering method.
