Paper Abstract

CdTe/CdS heterojunctions are valuable candidates for photovoltaic conversion of solar energy. Cadmium sulphide thin layers have been glass deposited from chemical bath containing cadmium acetate, thioureea, sodium citrate and ammonia. The CdS/glass structures were characterized by UV- VIS reflectance and transmittance spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction spectroscopy; the microstructural parameters of CdS films were determined by single x-ray profile. The influence of the deposition procedure, i.e. in monolayered and multilayered form as well as that of the post-growth thermal treatment on the optical and structural properties of CdS films was studied.
