In2O3 exhibits a dramatic increase in solubility of SnO2 and ZnO when they are cosubstituted into In2O3. The resultant material, In2-2xSnxZnxO3-δ with x = 0-0.4, displays the same order of magnitude conductivity and transparency compared with bulk ITO (tin-doped indium oxide). Rapid quenching of In2-2xSnxZnxO3-δ raises the conductivity and widens the optical bandgap while lowering the optical transmission.
