Abstract

PbS thin films are deposited on soda-lime glass substrates using simple and inexpensive chemical bath deposition (CBD) method. We investigated the structural, morphological, and optical properties of PbS thin films as a function of deposition time. XRD and Raman analysis confirm the phase of PbS thin films. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) examined to study the morphological properties of the films. The optical properties such as transmission, absorption, and band gap of the films were investigated by UV-Vis-NIR spectrometer. The optical direct band gap values (1.10–0.93 eV) are estimated using the absorption data.
