Amorphous mixed metal oxide transparent conductors such as In-Zn-O (IZO) can be very resistant to crystallization depending on their metal composition. The left frame shows the 2D XRD detector image for IZO that remained amorphous after heating in air (83% In) while the center frame shows the onset of crystallization (85% In) and the IZO in the right frame (85% In) is crystalline after the same anneal.
