X-Ray Studies on PbS
In this work, lead sulphide has been characterized using X- ray diffraction, SEM, EDX and UV-Visible techniques. X-ray analysis is done by using the Rietveld refinement method of matching the observed and calculated profiles, and then the results obtained from the refinement process are used in finding the electron density distribution by using maximum entropy method (MEM). The local structure analysis of PbS is done by the pair distribution function (PDF). Particle size analysis is done with the use of XRD data, SEM analysis is done in finding the surface structure and EDX in finding the elemental composition of PbS sample. The energy gap of PbS is found from UV-Visible spectrum.
