|Abstract: ||This paper compares the structural and optical
properties of electrodeposited Cadmium
Telluride films grown on Cadmium Sulphide
films prepared by two different methods:
pulsed DC Magnetron Sputtering and
Chemical Bath deposition (CBD). The films
were characterised using Scanning Electron
Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron
Microscopy (TEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray
Spectroscopy (EDS) and Spectrophotometry.
The SEM and TEM characterisation revealed
that the microstructure of the CdTe film was
influenced by the deposition method used for
the underlying thin film CdS. The CdTe films
deposited on the CBD CdS films showed
development of bigger crystallites compared to
the films grown on the sputtered CdS layer.
Thickness measurements showed that the
substrate had significant influence on the
growth rate of the CdTe, with the material
grown on sputtered CdS having 3 times higher
deposition rate. Transmission measurements
showed that the material deposited on the
sputtered CdS had a narrower band gap,
1.41eV, compared to that deposited on CBD
