Spectroscopically pure bismuth is evaporated onto glass substrates at different substrate temperature using a Hind Hivac coating plant. The electrical conductivity of bismuth thin films, prepared at different substrate temperatures is measured and thermal activation energy is evaluated. From the recorded optical absorption spectrum in the ultraviolet and visible regions optical band gapEg is determined. X-ray diffractograms are recorded and lattice parameters are determined.
