Co1-xCux)0.2(Ni0.3Mn0.7)0.8]3O4 (0≤x≤1) thin films prepared by metal organic decomposition process were fabricated on SiN/Si substrate for infrared sensor application. Their structural and electrical properties were investigated with variation of Cu dopant. The [(Co1-xCux)0.2(Ni0.3Mn0.7)0.8]3O4 (CCNMO) film annealed at 500℃ exhibited a dense microstructure and a homogeneous crystal structure with a cubic spinel phase. Their crystallinity was further enhanced with increasing doped Cu amount. The

Furthermore, the negative temperature coefficient of resistance (NTCR) characteristics were lower than -2%/℃ for all the specimens with x≥0.6. These results imply that the CCNMO (x≥0.6) thin films are a good candidate material for infrared sensor application.
