Structural defect structure of indium tin oxide (ITO) was analyzed using high-resolution synchrotron x-ray diffraction, time of flight neutron powder diffraction and extended x-ray absorption fine structure. Correlation between structural results and electrical properties was made using measured electrical conductivity and thermopower. It was observed that the position of O i species in ITO samples were displaced along the direction towards the plane formed by d cations and away from the b cations. The structural results show atomic positions, cation distributions, and oxygen interstitial populations for oxidized and reduced materials.
