Deposition of ZnO thin films using SILAR method is reported. The films exhibited hexagonal wurtzite structure and the lattice parameters well matching with the theoretical values. Annealing increased the crystallite size, reduced the microstrain and dislocation density thereby proving the enhancement in the quality of the films. Morphology of the films is studied using SEM images. Absorbance spectra showed slight redshift in the absorbance edge on annealing. PL spectra showed improvement in the blue emissions on annealing which suggests device suitability in the UV region.
