Transparent films of CuScO[sub 2+x] have been prepared which show p-type electrical conductivity. The temperature dependence of the conductivity indicates semiconducting behavior with an apparent room temperature activation energy of 0.11 eV. The highest room temperature conductivity observed was 30 S cm[sup -1]. Films 110 nm thick show 40% transparency in most of the visible spectrum and become much more transparent in the infrared spectrum. The p-type behavior was confirmed by the Seebeck effect. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
