We have demonstrated the growth of ZnO thin films with c-axis (002) orientation at room temperature on Si(100), SiO2, and amorphous ZnO substrates by the radio frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering method. We investigated the structural properties of ZnO thin films deposited on various substrates with varying the RF power. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that increasing the RF power helped to decrease the compression stress and to increase the grain size, regardless of the substrate material. Scanning electron microscopy indicated that the structural morphology of the ZnO films were not dependent on the substrate material.
