Article history: The Cadmium telluride (CdTe) thin ﬁlm has been prepared by physical vapor deposition (PVD), the Ar + O Received 29 August 2015 pressure is about 0.9 kPa. This method is a newer technique to deposit CdTe thin ﬁlm in large area, and Received in revised form 22 October 2015 the size of the ﬁlm is 30 × 40 cm . This method is much different from the close-spaced sublimation Accepted 6 November 2015 (CSS), as the relevance between the source temperature and the substrate temperature is weak, and the Available online 12 November 2015 gas phase of CdTe is transferred to the substrate by Ar + O ﬂow. Through this method, the compact and uniform CdTe ﬁlm (30 × 40 cm ) has been achieved, and the performances of the CdTe thin ﬁlm have Keywords: been determined by transmission spectrum, SEM and XRD. The ﬁlm is observed to be compact with Large-area CdTe thin ﬁlm a good crystallinity, the CdTe is polycrystalline with a cubic structure and a strongly preferred (1 1 1) CdS/CdTe solar cell orientation. Using the CdTe thin ﬁlm (3 × 5 cm ) which is taken from the deposited large-area ﬁlm, the Physical
