Abstract
ZnO is an important II-VI semiconductor material for devices with possible applications such as piezoelectric transducers, gas sensors, transparent electronic in solar cell, saw devices. Based on known research, ZnO is the most prom-ising in optoelectronic and optical applications, especially in UV region. An understanding of the optical properties of ZnO thin film on different substrates is also needed to obtain the optimal configuration for the best performance. In this work, we start our simulation by made a Matlab code to study the Sellmeier equation. The behavior of light transmission of ZnO/BK7 glass and ZnO/Sapphire is studied. Both the variation of thickness of ZnO film and different parameters of Sellmeier model are studied. This approach helps us to determine the best configuration (thin film / substrate) to made advices for optoelectronic applications.
