In this article we calculate the skin depth of indium tin oxide (ITO) films (and related materials) as a result of free electron absorption within the visible spectrum using the simple Drude model. We also discuss the consequences of finite skin depth for the transparency of current spreading layers for light emitting diode (LED) applications. Low sheet resistances are highly desirable for these layers, but the free electron density n in ITO cannot be increased much beyond 2
