Undoped and indium-doped CdS films prepared by chemical vapour deposition

  • G. Meyer
  • J. Saura


Undoped and In-doped films of CdS were deposited at different temperatures by the chemical vapour deposition technique on glass and In-coated (30 nm) glass, respectively. Both kinds of film present a columnar microstructure, low porosity and good adherence to the substrate. The doped films have higher electron mobility values compared with the undoped ones. Shifts in the transmission spectra (Moss-Burstein effect) were observed with increased doping. Small crystals grew over the doped films during the deposition stage, mainly at the higher substrate temperatures.
