Thin CdS films have been produced by chemical surface deposition from aqueous solutions of cadmium acetate, Cd(CH3COO)2. We have studied the morphology and optical properties of the CdS films and calculated the mechanical stress induced by the difference in linear thermal expansion coefficient between the film and substrate materials.
