The present work focuses on sol-gel derived SnO2-based thin glass-ceramic films doped with Er3+ ions, fabricated by dipcoating technique. Our goal is to find a viable fabrication protocol to obtain them. Thin films with a variety of composition were synthesized and their structural, optical and spectroscopic properties were investigated. The FTIR spectra and X-ray diffraction patterns were used to characterize the structure of the thin films. The transparency of the thin film was tested by UV-Vis transmittance measurements. The energy transfer dynamic was investigated by time-resolved spectroscopy and photoluminescence measurements.
