The purpose of this investigation was to elucidate the effect of chemisorbed oxygen has on the electrical properties of ZnO. The electrical properties of ZnO were investigated by observing the trends of the dielectric properties as a function of temperature, frequency and partial pressure of oxygen. The dielectric data were taken using advanced experimental measurement techniques, and analyzed using impedance plotting methods. These data are subsequently compared with existing theory.
