    • Abstract


      Cd0·8Zn0·2S films were prepared by the spray pyrolysis technique on glass and conducting glass (fluorine doped tin oxide) substrates, by spraying aqueous solutions of cadmium chloride, zinc chloride and thiourea. The spray rate was varied from 4 cc/min to 16 cc/min. It is found that film thickness increases with increase in spray rate. The electrical and optical properties of the films namely dark conductivity, thermoelectric power and optical absorption were studied; conductivity and thermoelectric power are higher for the films prepared at lower spray rate (4·3 cc/min).
