The paper deals with investigations concerning a wide-band gap material, viz. zinc oxide ZnO. Special attention has been devoted to the determination of the spectral transmission of zinc oxide layers deposited on quartz substrates. These investigations have made it possible to determine the optical spectral range in which this material is transparent as well as the edges of absorption. The presented investigations are valuable particularly concerning the application of zinc oxide in optoelectronic and photonic structures as well as in systems of waveguides and sensor layers of integrated optics.
