Controlled Potential Electrodeposition and Characterization of ZnTe Thin Films on Indium Tin Oxides

Abstract:

Article Preview

Electrodeposition of ZnTe thin films by controlled potential method from aqueous solutions on ITO were done to investigate characteristics suitable as a window material in solar cells technology. The influence deposition of potential towards the Zn:Te ratio and the crystallinity are discussed. The electrodeposited films were investigated by using X-Ray Diffraction and Energy Dispersive Analysis of X-Ray. The Te content decreases at higher deposition potentials.
