Al-doped Zn1-xMgxO films were deposited on glass substrates at a temperature of 200°C using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique. The increase in Mg composition further increased the film resistivity. The energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDX) with electron acceleration voltage of 15 kV was used to measure the chemical composition of each film. The results of the preliminary study suggests that an increase in the electron effective mass occurs upon alloying of ZnO with MgO.
