Polycrystalline thin films of copper indium sulphoselenide [CuIn(S,Se)2] were deposited on glass substrate by chemical bath deposition technique. The deposition parameters such as pH, temperature and time were optimized. A set of films having different elemental compositions was prepared by varying Cu/In ratio from 1.87–12.15. The films were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDAX). The chemical composition of the CuIn(S,Se)2 was found to be nonstoichiometric. The d.c. conductivities of the films were studied below and near room temperature. The thermo-electric power of the films was also measured and type of semiconductivity was ascertained.

The polycrystalline sample of LiBaPO4 : Tb3+ (LBPT) was successfully synthesized by solution combustion synthesis and studied for its luminescence characteristics. The thermoluminescence (TL) glow curve of LBPT material consists of two peaks at 204.54 and 251.21°C. The optimum concentration was 0.005 mol to obtain the higher TL intensity compared to commercial TLD-100 phosphor. The peak shape method was used to calculate kinetic parameter (activation energy and frequency factor). In CW-OSL mode its sensitivity for beta exposure was found to be 50% compared to commercially available 𝛼-Al2O3 : C and 40% than LMP (BARC), and photoluminescence spectrum of LBPT shows green emission when excited with 225 nm UV source.
