N-doped ZnO (NZO) thin films are synthesized via spray pyrolysis technique in aqueous medium treating zinc acetate and N,N-dimethylformamide as precursors. Influence of N doping on structural, optical and luminescence properties have been investigated. Films are nanocrystalline having hexagonal crystal structure. Raman analysis depicts an existence of N-Zn-O structure in NZO thin film. XPS spectrum of N1s shows the 400 eV peak terminally bonded, well screened molecular nitrogen (gamma-N-2). Lowest direct band gap of 3.17 eV has been observed for 10 at% NZO thin film. The UV, blue, and green deep-level emissions in photoluminescence of NZO films are due to Zn interstitials and O vacancies.
