Paper Abstract

We report new results on continuous wave Nd:YAG laser deposition of Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) thin films. Cadmium Sulfide has useful piezoelectric, optoelectric, photo-conductive and semiconductive properties. CdS films have been deposited on various substrates including Soda-lime silicate glass (SLS), NaCl, Alumina (corundum) and copper coated formvar. The thin films were analyzed using x-ray diffraction, SEM, EDS, TEM, and UV/visible transmission spectra.
