Paper Title:
Electrodeposited Crack-Free CdS Thin Films Using Organic Solvents
  Abstract

Crack-free CdS thin films have been electrodeposited on conductive glass substrate by CdCl2 and S powder in dimethylformamide (DMF) and mixed organic solvents with appropriate volume ratio at temperatures lower than 100°C. The effects of solvents on the cracks and the photovoltaic property and catalytic property of CdS thin film are investigated. The results show that the crack-free CdS thin films have higher photoluminescence (PL) emission intensity and better photoelectrichemistry and photocatalytic activities for degradation organic dyes of Fuchsin acid, phenol red and crystal violet than thin films with cracks.
