Cathodic electrodeposition of SnS thin films from aqueous solution


Zainal, Zulkarnain and Hussein, Mohd Zobir and Ghazali, Arniza (1996) Cathodic electrodeposition of SnS thin films from aqueous solution. Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, 40 (4). pp. 347-357. ISSN 0927-0248

Abstract / Synopsis

SnS thin films were prepared by cathodic electrodeposition on ITO/glass and Ti substrates from a solution containing SnCl2 and thiosulphate ions. Cyclic voltammetry experiments were performed to elucidate the electrodic processes occurred when potentials were applied and to determine the optimum potential for electrodeposition. The photoactivity of the deposited films and their conduction types were evaluated using the photoelectrochemical technique. The bandgap energy and type of optical transitions were determined from optical absorbance data. Structural and compositional analysis were accomplished using X-ray diffractometry, electron dispersive analysis of X-ray, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The morphology of the films were examined using scanning electron microscopy.
