Thermopower measurements in a range of 300-650 K along with room temperature optical absorption and electrical resistivity studies were performed on indium oxide (IO) and indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films grown by reactive dc sputtering. The thermopower of as-grown and oxygen-annealed IO and ITO films measured in Ar ambient displayed characteristics attributable to oxygen loss. The observations were substantiated with optical absorption and electrical resistivity results.
