Electrochemical Characteristics of Indium Tin Oxide Nanoparticles prepared by Sol-gel Combustion Hybrid Method Chaoumead, Accarat; Choi, Woo-Jin; Lee, Dong-Hoon; Sung, Youl-Moon;
Indium tin oxide (In:) nanoparticles were synthesized employing a sol-gel combustion method followed by annealing. The TG, XRD, XPS and SEM results of the precursor powders and calcinated In: nanoparticles were investigated. Crystal structures were examined by powder XRD, and those results show shaper intensity peak at () of by increased annealing temperature. A particle morphology and size was examined by SEM, and the size of the nanoparticles was found to be in the range of 20~30nm. In: films could controlled by nanoparticle material at various annealing temperature. The sol-gel combustion method was offered simple and effective route for the synthesis of In: nanoparticles.
