Hexagonal ZnO films with the preferred growth orientation of c axis parallel to the substrate have been deposited by r.f. sputtering. An electrical field induced oxygen adsorption was observed on these films. Oxygen adsorption produced by illumination of a UV light or/and reaction with Ar plasma increased the conductivity of the films by 6-7 orders of magnitude and an accumulation layer displayed on the surface of the films.
