- AZO: Al-doped ZnO (aluminium-doped zinc oxide)
- GZO: Ga-doped ZnO (gallium-doped zinc oxide)
- IZO: In-doped ZnO (indium-doped zinc oxide)
- MZO: Mg-doped ZnO (magnesium-doped zinc oxide)
Comment: Unfortunately, MZO is also used as acronym for metal-doped ZnO, bringing ambiguity to the three-letter acronyms. What about using AlZO, GaZO, InZO, MgZO and MeZO instead? This schema further allow us to distinguish between Ag-doped ZnO and Al-doped ZnO, i.e. between AgZO and AlZO.
