    • Abstract

       

      Polycrystalline mercury sulphide (HgS) thin film at room temperature and in acidic condition was deposited on amorphous glass substrate by using improved chemical bath deposition technique. The structural and morphological analysis of as-deposited and annealed films was carried out by X-ray diffraction and scanning electronic microscopic technique. Ultraviolet and d.c. electrical resistivity measurement were made to study electrical and optical properties of the thin films. The outcome indicates formation of well-crystallized pure $\beta$HgS thin films having good electrical and optical properties. For this reason, HgS thin film in acidic medium was deposited properly by using chemical bathdeposition technique.
