Title: Transparent Conducting Properties of SrSnO 3 and ZnSnO 3

We report optical properties of doped n-type SrSnO 3 and ZnSnO 3 in relation to potential application as transparent conductors. We find that the orthorhombic distortion of the perovskite structure in SrSnO 3 leads to absorption in the visible as the doping level is increased. This arises from interband transitions. We find that strain tuning could modify this absorption, but does not eliminate it. On the other hand, we find that ZnSnO 3 although also having a non-cubic structure, can retain excellent transparency when doped, making it a good candidate transparent conductor.
