A novel ternary oxide compound magnesium indate film, MgIn2O4 (MIO), manifesting high transparency and conductivity has been prepared by spray pyrolysis technique. Stoichiometrically mixed precursors were thermally sprayed onto glass substrates and decomposed at 400 and 450 1C and the growth parameters were studied in detail. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) studies have been conducted to confirm the formation of stoichiometric films. The dc electrical conductivity of these films was measured in the temperature range between 30 and 100 1C by four-probe technique. Measurement of Hall coefficient showed n-type electrical conduction and high-carrier concentration. Optical properties were studied in the wavelength range 280–1500nm and surface morphology of the MIO films were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and, atomic force microscopy (AFM).
