Comparative Studies of CdZnS Thin Films at Low Zinc Content Prepared by Vacuum Evaporation and CBD
Cd1−xZnxS thin films at low Zn content were prepared both by chemical bath deposition (CBD) and vacuum co-evaporation. The X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis were performed to determine the composition of the films, while the structural properties were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD). As a probable window layer, the optical band gaps of Cd1−xZnxS thin films prepared by the dry and wet process were calculated. Finally, the surface morphologies of the thin films were survey by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM).
