Thin films of antimony-doped tin oxide have been obtained by a new technique, the so-called hydrolysis deposition method, in which hydrolyzed solids are precipitated from metal fluoride solutions. Mixed solutions of SnF3 and SbF3 produce antimony- and fluorine-doped tin oxide films. The amount of antimony can be controlled in a wide range by adjusting the initial fluoride concentrations of the solution. The film containing 2.9 mol% antimony heated at 500°C has an electrical resistivity of 1.0 × 10-3 Ω·cm, which is lower than previously obtained by wet-chemical techniques.
