Abstract : Single and multilayer sol-gel thin films of TiO2-PbO, Ti02-Bi203 and Ti02- Ceo2 composition were deposited on glasses using the dip coating technique. The precursors included Ti(OPri)4 chemically modified by acetyl acetone and diluted in PriOH and sols of Pb(OAc)2, Bi(NO3)3 5H20 diluted in acetic acid. The Ti02-CeO2 sol was prepared by mixing Ce(NH4)2(NO3)6 in ethanol and then adding Ti(O-iso-C3H7)4.Structure texture and homogeneity of their main constituants was established by XRD, XPS, SIMS and SEM-EDX techniques as a function of heat treatments.
