The electrical and optical properties of thin films of K-Sb-S prepared by spraying a solution of antimony potassium tartrate and thiourea onto heated conducting and non-conducting glass substrates are described. The polycrystalline films produced at an optimum spray rate and at different substrate temperatures were characterized for semiquantitative analysis. The films show variation in thickness with substrate temperature. Photoelectrochemical cells formed with the K-Sb-S film electrode, 0·5 M ferrocene in dimethylsulphoxide as the electrolyte and carbon as the counterelectrode were studied for their current voltage characteristics in dark and in light. Variation of short circuit current and open circuit voltage with light excitation intensity is also described.
