We have discovered new transparent conducting oxides (TCOs), anatase Ti1-xMxO2 (M=Nb,Ta), in thin film form, Both films with 0.03 ≤ x ≤ 0.06 showed resistivity of 2-3 × 10 -4 Ωcm and internal transmittance of ∼95% in the visible light region (40 nm in thickness), at room temperature. These values are comparable to those of typical TCOs, such as In2-xSn xO3 (ITO).
