Biophysical Characterization of Thin Films of Zinc Oxide Prepared by Sol-Gel

Abothur Almohana and Radea Hateem Jawad


In this research, ZnO nano-powder was used, and the work was in two biological and physical parts. Where the work of the first part was to examine the effect of ZnO powder on Staphylococcus aureus, and the result of inhibition was 100%. As for the second part, the preparation of a thin film by the Sol-Gel method, where thin films were deposited on glass, the structural properties and topography of the surface were studied. The prevailing trend (101). Also, the results of the atomic force microscopy (AFM) tests showed that the resulting granular size of the prepared and annealed films with a temperature (400 ° C) was less than 100 nm, wherein an anti-bacterial nanoscale S. aureus was made.
