The growth of high quality Zn 1-xMg xO thin films was analyzed using magnetron sputtering. The double doping of Zn 1-xMg xO films with aluminum and indium was shown. The electrical and optical transmission properties were achieved in a 25 % oxygen atmosphere. The results show that the wide band gap and moderate electrical conductivity made ZnMgO films to be used in photovoltaic cells.
