The optical and electrical properties of ZnO films incorporating 0.25 at.% Pt nanoparticles were studied. Pt nanoparticles were synthesized by a methanol reduction method and their size was controlled to 3nm on average using poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidon) as a protecting agent. The electrical conduction of the ZnO films was enhanced by the introduction of Pt nanoparticles without degradation of the optical transmittance. Well-defined 60-μm-wide direct-patterned ZnO films containing Pt nanoparticles were formed by using photosensitive orthonitrobenzaldehyde as a stabilizer to contribute the formation of a crosslinked network structure during a photochemical reaction.
