Growth and Characterisation of Ag2S Films on ZnS/Indium-Tin-Oxide Coated Glass
ZnS thin films were deposited on indium–tin-oxide (ITO) coated glass substrates by a chemical bath deposition method. Then the ZnS/ITO slides were immersed in the solution containing 6 mM phosphate buffer solution (pH 7.4), sodium polyacrylate (0.01% w/w), and 0.24 mM AgNO3 at 37°C for 3 h to growth Ag2S films on the surface of ZnS/ITO slides. The absorption band of Ag2S/ZnS/ITO slide displays a considerably blue-shifted. The X-ray diffraction analysis demonstrated the presence of acanthite Ag2S on the surface of ZnS/ITO slides, which is consistent with the cyclic voltammetic data.
