Single crystals of CaSO4:Dy, with and without charge compensator were grown by the solution growth technique. Electrical conductivity was studied at room temperature for diverse concentrations of Dysprosium and showed that it increases upto 0.2 wt % of Dy, beyond which saturation sets in. Electrical conductivity was studied in the region 400 to 700°K and the migration energies estimated for various dopant concentrations. The variation of electrical conductivity and migration energy with diverse dopent concentration is explained on the basis of the theory of defects. The thermoelectric power measurements reveal that the crystals grown are of

Cd0·8Zn0·2S films were prepared by the spray pyrolysis technique on glass and conducting glass (fluorine doped tin oxide) substrates, by spraying aqueous solutions of cadmium chloride, zinc chloride and thiourea. The spray rate was varied from 4 cc/min to 16 cc/min. It is found that film thickness increases with increase in spray rate. The electrical and optical properties of the films namely dark conductivity, thermoelectric power and optical absorption were studied; conductivity and thermoelectric power are higher for the films prepared at lower spray rate (4·3 cc/min).

Cadmium sulphide thin films have been deposited onto chromium plated stainless steel substrates under the influence of electric field. The various deposition parameters such as speed of rotation of the substrates, temperature of the chemical bath, molar concentrations of solution and the strength of the electric field were kept at optimized conditions. The electrochemical photovoltaic (

Thin films of CuBiS2 have been deposited on glass substrates using spray pyrolysis technique. The effect of substrate temperature on the growth of CuBiS2 thin films is studied in the range of 150 to 400°C. The best quality films are grown at substrate temperature 250°C with 0·1 M composition. Other preparative parameters like spray rate, pressure, height of the solution, etc are optimized with respect to substrate temperature. Some optical and electrical properties of CuBiS2 films are also studied and reported.

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.

The performance of the redox storage battery based on the Fe-Cr redox couple is studied in charging and discharging modes of the system. The stability of each charged species is determined by measuring the variation of half-cell potential with time. The spectra of the electrolytes are recorded before and after charging of the system. The effect of atmosphere on the charged species has also been investigated.

Co-deposition of the Tl-based superconductors using electrodeposition technique was successfully carried out. Different processing parameters such as deposition potential, current density, deposition period etc were studied. The Tl-based alloyed thin films were deposited at a constant potential of −1·25V with respect to SCE electrode onto silver substrates and oxidized at 850°C in oxygen atmosphere. The samples thus prepared showed superconducting behaviour below 122·5 K and the critical current density was 1·5×103A/cm2. Electrochemical synthesis of Tl-based high
