Abstract: ZnO samples used in this thesis were fabricated by solution method using water bath (WB) and microwave heating (MVH) and by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The PLD ZnO samples were n-type doped with Ga and the electron effective mass was measured for the first time as a function of doping concentration by combining THz-TDS and Hall measurement. It is also noticed that the electron mobility determined by THz-TDS can be 7 times greater than that obtained by Hall due to carrier localization. Comparison of ZnO grown by WB and MVH shows that MVH synthesized ZnO has less intrinsic doping/defects and more uniform distribution. It is found that to obtain reliable p-type doping with potassium (K), the amount of K interstitial, Ki and KZn-Ki complexes must be minimized by annealing above 700oC for 30 minutes to break down the complexes and drive out Ki and Hi which compensate the p-conductivity.
