We report the application of spray pyrolysis (SP) for the deposition of high quality zinc oxide (ZnO) films and the fabrication of thin-film transistors. The chemical, structural, optical, and electronic properties of as-deposited ZnO films are studied using infrared spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, UV-visible spectroscopic ellipsometry, and field-effect measurements. SP ZnO films are found to be uniform and polycrystalline with a band gap of 3.32 eV. ZnO transistors exhibit n-channel characteristics with electron mobility in the range 10-22 cm(2)/Vs. Device performance is found to depend on the work function of source/drain metal electrodes and on the device architecture employed.
