Cyclo-hafnium metal-organic thin film was successfully synthesized and deposited on amorphous glass using a specific method, where amorphous substrate was used for synthesis and coating. Then, the film was annealed at 300 degrees C in an oven (ambient conditions). Optical and structural properties of the films were also investigated within the study. The structure of the film was analyzed using the mid-infrared spectrum. Optical properties were investigated via the UV-Vis spectroscopic technique. Film thickness was measured with AFM (tapping mode). Surface properties and elemental ratio of the films were examined and measured with SEM and EDX analysis. The highest transmittance and lowest reflectance values within the visible range were identified. The characteristic triethanolamine and hafnium-oxide peaks were observed in the infrared spectrum. FIR spectra of the films were found to be in accordance with the literature. SEM images of the films revealed that the surface of the films is fragile. EDX analysis of hafnium, organic parts of the compound and some minerals of amorphous glass were shown.
