Thin films of tin-doped indium oxide, In2O3:Sn (ITO), with 9 mol% Sn were grown heteroepitaxially at 600 degree(s)C by dc magnetron sputtering on (100)-faces of lattice-matched yttrium stabilized zirconia, ZrO2:Y (YSZ). Carrier density ranging from about 1026cm-3 to 1027m-3 has been measured after film annealing at 200divided by750 degree(s)C in oxygen or vacuum. The lowest resistivity valued down to about 4.0(DOT)10-6 (Omega) m (at 300 K) have been indicated for the vacuum-annealed films. Optical transmittance and reflectance spectra of the films were investigated at T = 85divided by300 K in the UV, visible and near IR spectra regions ((lambda) = 0.2divided by6.0 micrometers ). The transmittance spectra in the vicinity of the band-gap were modeled in terms of direct allowed transitions taking in to account both the gap widening (the Burstein-Moss effect) and narrowing due to electron-electron and electron-ion interaction. The band- gap Eg0, of 3.47 eV and 3.54 eV has been evaluated for non-doped material at T = 300 K and 85 K, respectively.
