We have investigated the distribution and amount of nitrogen implanted in tin oxide films using SIMS and XPS depth profiling. The amount of nitrogen was found to increase with increasing ion dose and energy. In the nitrogen depth profile a peak was observed indicating the position of the maximum nitrogen concentration and the result was verified using theoretical calculations. The relative distribution of nitrogen compared to tin was found to decrease continuously with increasing depth of the film.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
