Thin-films of copper oxide (Cu infinity O) were sputtered from a metallic copper (Cu) target and studied as a function of oxygen partial pressure O-PP. A metallic Cu film with cubic structure obtained from 0% O-PP has been transformed to cubic Cu2O phase for the increase in O to 9% but then changed to monoclinic CuO phase (for OPP >= 25%). The variation in crystallite size (calculated from x-ray diffraction data) was further substantiated by the variation in grain size (surface microstructures). The Cu O films produced with O ranging between 9% and 75% showed p-type behavior, which were successfully applied to produce thin-film transistors.
