Zinc oxide (ZnO) films were synthesized by thermal oxidation of metallic zinc films in air. The influence of annealing temperatures ranging from 320 to 1000°C on the structural and optical properties of ZnO films was also investigated using x-ray diffraction and room temperature photoluminescence (PL). It was observed that the ZnO film annealed at 410°C exhibits the strongest UV emission intensity and narrowest full width at half maximum among the temperature ranges studied.
