Paper Abstract

Among wide gap semiconducting compounds the alkaline earth suiphides are being exploited for device applications such as multi.- color thin-film electro.-luminescent, maieto.-optical and IR devices; dosimetry and high resolution imaging. Barium Sulphide (BaS), being one of the compounds of this class of semiconductors, has also been studied by various workers in view of its expected useful applications. The authors have been able to review the optical, electrical and defect structure properties of BaS. Activators and co-activators have been found to form luminescent centres in this material. Schottky disorder and vacancy migration has been observed to dominate in these crystals0 However, there remains a controversy with regard to the band structure o the material.
