Paper Abstract

CdS-CdTe heterojunctions are valuable candidates for photovoltaic conversion of solar energy. In this work, thermal vacuum evaporation has been used to grow CdTe films on glass supported CdS substrate. Cadmium sulphide thin layers have been grown by chemical bath deposition. The influence of different preparation foundations on thin film quality has been studied. The otpical homogeneity and film thickness was used as criteria to select the best substrate for the subsequent CdTe deposition. Some structural and optical characteristics of CdS/glass and CdTe/CdS/glass structures have been determined.
