    • Abstract

       

      Thin films of copper bismuth diselenide were prepared by chemical bath deposition technique onto glass substrate below 60°C. The deposition parameters such as time, temperature of deposition and pH of the solution, were optimized. The set of films having different elemental compositions was prepared by varying Cu/Bi ratio from 0.13–1.74. Studies on structure, composition, morphology, optical absorption and electrical conductivity of the films were carried out and discussed. Characterization includes X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDAX), absorption spectroscopy, and electrical conductivity. The results are discussed and interpreted.
