The transparent oxides such as SnO2, In2O3 and ZnO continue to arouse a private interest for their various applications. The objective of the various studies being to carry out the layers which are simultaneously most transparent and most conducting possible. Thus in the field of the solar spectrum, the transmission of the layers must be higher than 80% and their conductivity exceeding 103 (Ohm.cm)-1. Their transparency which is related to the value of their forbidden band must be higher than 3.7 e V. Their electric properties as for them depend on the composition of the layers and a possible doping. In this work, one characterized layers of SnO2 deposited by chemical pulverization, one carried out measurements by, electronic scan microscopy, diffraction of x-rays and also of the optical measurements and electronic. It results from it that the layers are conducting and transparent in the visible one but they are relatively rough, following its characterizations, one carried out organic photovoltaic cells using these layers of SnO2 and also of the commercial ITO like anode in these components. More particularly one was interested in the influence of the presence of a fine layer of gold between the anode and organic material.
