Abstract

Pure, Barium and Nickel doped cadmium sulphide (CdS) thin films have been coated on glass substrates at 400 °C by spray pyrolysis technique. The prepared CdS and doped CdS thin films were analysed by various measurements such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), SEM, optical and Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM). X-ray diffraction measurements show that the coated pure, Ba and Ni-doped CdS thin films belong to the cubic crystal structure with orientation preferentially along (111) direction. The average crystallite size of pure, Ba and Ni doped CdS thin films were determined as 31, 33 and 45 nm, respectively. The average dislocation density (δ) and stacking fault (SF) of pure, Ba and Ni doped CdS thin films were also determined. The surface morphology and elemental analysis of the thin films were determined by scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectrum (SEM with EDAX). It is observed that the optical energy bandgap has been decreased from 2.43 to 2.1 eV due to the doping Ba. The luminescence spectrum shows a strong emission peak at 517 nm in the case of pure CdS thin film and a meager red shift has been observed due to the doping. VSM studies were employed to study the magnetic behaviour of Ba and Ni doped CdS thin films.
