    The paper studies the formation of thin-film and disperse SiO2-MxOy systems (where M - Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) synthesized with sol-gel technology. The influence of metal salt on tetraethoxysilane hydrolysis and film-forming solution viscosity is considered. Dependence of the film optical properties on their composition was determined. According to the electronic scanning microscopy, obtained with a secondary electrons detector, the films containing nickel, mangaese and cobalt have homogeneous morphology and contain pores, sized 100 nm-1 μm, evenly distributed on the surface. The pores contain well crystallized metal oxide nanoparticles.
