Thin films were made by spinning a dispersion of tin-doped indium-oxide particles, having an average diameter of 14 nm, onto glass substrates. As-deposited thin films displayed a resistivity ρ of 0.3 Ω m and some optical absorption. Annealing in vacuum at 200 to 400 °C for 2 h, and subsequently in air at 500 °C for 2 h, produced films with ρ ≈ 10-3 Ω m and a visible transmittance exceeding 90 %. Leaving out the vacuum treatment yielded higher resistivity.
