The europium doped SnO2 nanocrystallites were obtained by modified Pechini method. Next, the powders were added to SnCl4*5H2O and dissolved in isopropyl alcohol (IPA). The mixtures with different Eu3+:SnO2 to SnCl4 ratio were prepared. After few hours of mixing suspension was deposited on glass slides by spin-coating method and treated in 550 ºC. The same procedures have been done for Eu3+:SnO2/In(NO3)3/SnCl4. Optical and electrical properties of obtained layers have been determined and discussed.
