Paper Title:
Structural and Texture Studies of PbS Thin Film
  Abstract

In this study, we report on the structural parameters and texture development which occurred during deposition and annealing of PbS films and their effect on optical properties. The films under study were deposited on glass substrates through chemical bath method. The reactive substances used to obtain the PbS layers were lead accetae trihydrated, thiourea and hydrazine hydrate. The films were prepared with one molar bath concentration and for various deposition times. The data showed that as-prepared and annealed thin films are polycrystalline with cubic structure and predominantly textured along 100. Results showed that thinner films are more prone to post deposition heat treatments as compared to thicker ones. Deposition parameters and thermal treatment strongly influence the optical properties of PbS films.
