The processes of magnetron synthesis of ZnO–SnO2-based films by the magnetron sputtering of metal (Zn–Sn), ceramic (ZnO–SnO2) and composite (ZnO–SnO2 + 10wt.% Zn–Sn) targets were studied. It is shown that during magnetron sputtering of the metal and composite targets a multy-layered structure can be formed due to periodic changes in the composition of the sputtered target surface in the erosion zone.
