(Mx, Zn 1-x O), M= Sn, Al nanofibers properties were investigated. Pure and M-doped zinc oxide films were fabricated onto a glass substrate by a facile and low cost spin coating route. X-rays analysis reveals that films crystallize with a wurtzite structure according to (002) orientation. The transmittance in the visible range was as high as 88 % at 550 nm. The doping increased slightly the transmittance, the as-grown films were high transparent in VIS and IR ranges. The optical band gap was a little bit changed by doping. AFM 3D-views revealed that grains were nanofibers with the size of 18.22, 18.23 and 44.27 nm respectively for pure, Al and Sn-doped ZnO films.
