Paper Abstract

The photosensitivity of lead chalcogenides in the IR region has been known for a long time. These detectors exhibit wide range of electrical characteristics. A cheap and easy chemical bath deposition process has been utilized to deposit PbS onto glass substrates. Well adherent nonporous `p' type PbS films of thickness 1 - 1.5 microns were obtained. These films, after heat treatment, showed a dark resistance of 0.5 - 1 M(Omega) with a high signal-to-noise ratio of 1000 with a D* (800 degree(s)C, 500 Hz, 2 Hz) of 2.6 X 1010 cm Hz1/2 W-1.
