Abstract

The Zn1-x-yCoxCdySe (0 ≤ x = y ≤ 0.15) thin films were deposited onto the micro-glass substrate via solution growth technique and studied through wet ability, compositional analysis, and morphological observations. The film surface was observed to be hydrophobic in nature. Compositional and elemental analysis confirmed the presence of Zn, Co, Cd and Se elements in Zn1-x-yCoxCdySe thin films, whereas, chemical states as 2+, 2+, 2+ and 2− was observed in XPS. Surface morphology shows a progression of fuzzy multifaceted crystallite network to globule decorated multifaceted network of crystallites.
