Thin films of MnO_2, Mn_2O_3, and Mn_3O_4 have been grown from single precursor solution by varying the post-annealing condition on the glass and corning substrate using a sol-gel technique. By annealing in air and at temperature between 600 and 800°C, cubic Mn_2O_3 films could be formed. The films were thermally annealed at different temperatures between 300 and 800C to create different crystalline structure. Even under the air-annealing condition, Zn doping results in a structural transformation from cubic Zn_{x}Mn_{2-x}O_3 to tetragonal Zn_{x}Mn_{3-x}O_4. X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, and UV-visible spectra were used to characterize the effect of thermal annealing on the optical and structural properties of a Zn doped manganese oxide thin film. Optical properties of the Mn_2O_3 and Mn_3O_4 films have been investigated by pointwise unconditioned minimization approach.
