In this work thin films containing laser dye (DCM) doped with (PVC) were prepared using casting method. Titania (TiO2) nanoparticles also were synthesized using sol-gel technique. Different titania nanoparticle densities (0.882×1020, 1.765×1020, 2.648×1020 and 3.530×1020 cm-3) were co-doping with dye doped polymer to study the effect of this addition on the optical properties and electronic transition energy gaps in cases of both direct and indirect transitions, Absorbance spectra were measured using Spectrophotometer. Absorption and extinction coefficients as well as the refractive indices have been obtained the spectra of absorbance at the strong absorption region. It was observed from results that the allowed direct electronic transitions energy gap was decreasing from 2.22 to 2.175e.V with the increasing of titania nanoparticles density and the allowed indirect electronic transition energy gap decreasing from 2.19 to 2.13e.V.
