ZnO is a good candidate material to be inserted as a tunneling insulator layer at the metal—semiconductor junction. A key consideration in many modern devices is the atomic structure of the hetero-interface, which often ultimately governs the electronic or chemical process of interest. Here, a complementary suite of in situ synchrotron X-ray techniques fluorescence, reflectivity and absorption as well as modeling is used to investigate both structural and chemical evolution during the initial growth of ZnO by atomic layer deposition ALD on In 0.
Prior to steady-state growth behavior, we discover a transient regime characterized by two stages.

This leads eventually to the formation of a 1 nm-thick, two-dimensional 2D amorphous layer. Second, the growth behavior and its modeling suggest the occurrence of dense island formation, with an aspect ratio and surface roughness that depends sensitively on the growth condition.
