Abstract: In this paper we investigate the band gap renormalization in heavily Ga-doped ZnO thin films deposited by pulsed laser deposition on C-plane sapphire and mica substrates. Thin films were studied by ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy and also by optical measurements under high pressure. The Fermi-level shift, as obtained from ultraviolet photoelectron experiments, exhibits a relatively small and positive shift (about 0.3 eV) with respect to the valence band for increasing electron concentrations up to 10 2…
