TiO2 - doped zirconium layers were deposited on silica substrate. It has been shown, that using a new hot target magnetron sputtering method it is possible to manufacture thin polycrystalline, dielectric films on amorphous substrate from metallic target even if post-deposition annealing was not done. Using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) examinations crystalline phases of rutile were found both in as-deposited and in annealed samples. Scanning electron micrographs showed polycrystalline morphology with homogenous distribution of crystallites.
